You can now use Amazon Aurora Cluster tagging to add tags to your Amazon Aurora storage for improved usage categorization and more granular cost reporting. Both the MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible editions of Aurora are supported.

A tag is a user-defined label expressed as a key-value pair that helps organize AWS resources. You can use tags to categorize resources such as storage, I/O, backups, snapshots, Aurora Backtrack, and Global Database replicated I/O. Tags can be based on the purpose, owner, environment, or any other attribute that you need to categorize these resources. For example, you can use tags to differentiate between your development, test, and production environments. You can learn more about tagging AWS resources by reading the documentation.

Aurora storage can be tagged using the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS SDK, Amazon RDS Management Console, and is available in all commercial AWS regions. You can learn more about tagging Aurora storage and its benefits by reading the documentation.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. It provides up to five times better performance than the typical MySQL database and three times the performance of the typical PostgreSQL database, together with increased scalability, durability, and security.
