Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) Data API is now available in Asia Pacific (Seoul) and Canada (Central) regions.

RDS Data API provides an HTTPS API endpoint for your applications to issue SQL commands to your Aurora Serverless v1 database and minimizes the overhead of driver integration and connection management in your application. Data API also uses credentials stored in AWS Secrets manager to authenticate with your database, eliminating the need to store credentials in your applications. To learn more about RDS Data API read the documentation.

Aurora Serverless is an on-demand, auto-scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora, where the database will automatically start up, shut down, and scale capacity up or down based on your application's needs. Amazon Aurora Serverless v1 is a simple, cost-effective option for infrequent, intermittent, or unpredictable workloads. Read about Aurora Serverless v1 on the product page and in the Aurora Serverless documentation.
