Amazon Aurora zero-downtime patching (ZDP), which attempts to preserve client connections through an engine patch, is now supported on Aurora MySQL engine release 2.07 and above. When ZDP executes successfully, application sessions are preserved and the database engine restarts while patching. Read the Aurora documentation to learn more. 

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 throughput than standard MySQL together with increased scalability, durability, and security.
