Amazon Aurora Multi-Master is a single database that allows you to create multiple read-write instances of your Aurora database across multiple Availability Zones, which enables uptime-sensitive applications to achieve continuous write availability through instance failure. With today’s launch, the feature is available for the MySQL-compatible edition of Aurora in 8 AWS regions. Check out this blog to find out how to build highly available MySQL applications using Aurora Multi-Master. 

The feature is now available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Frankfurt), and EU (Ireland).  

Read the Amazon Aurora documentation to learn more. You can create an Aurora Multi-Master cluster with just a few clicks in the Amazon RDS Management Console or download the latest AWS SDK or CLI.

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, together with increased scalability, durability, and security.
