You can now launch the T3 database instance type when using Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for MySQL and Amazon RDS for MariaDB in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

T3 database instances are the latest generation of x86-based burstable general-purpose instances that provide a baseline level of CPU performance with the ability to burst CPU usage at any time for as long as required. T3 instances offer a balance of compute, memory, and network resources and are ideal for database workloads with moderate CPU usage that experience temporary spikes in use.

Amazon RDS database instances running MySQL versions 5.7.16 and higher, MySQL versions 8.0.17 and higher, MariaDB versions 10.4.8 and higher, and MariaDB versions 10.5.8 and higher are supported with T3. You can easily upgrade to T3 instance class by modifying your existing DB instance in the Amazon RDS Management Console.

Please refer to the Amazon RDS User Guide for more details and refer to Amazon RDS Pricing for pricing details.
