Amazon Aurora Serverless v2, the next version of Aurora Serverless, is now generally available. Aurora Serverless v2 scales instantly to support even the most demanding applications, delivering up to 90% cost savings compared to provisioning for peak capacity.

Aurora Serverless is an on-demand, automatic scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora. Aurora Serverless v2 scales database workloads to hundreds of thousands of transactions in a fraction of a second. It adjusts capacity in fine-grained increments to provide just the right amount of database resources for an application’s needs. You don’t need to manage database capacity, and you pay for only the resources consumed by your application.

Aurora Serverless v2 provides the full breadth of Amazon Aurora capabilities, including Multi-AZ support, Global Database, RDS Proxy, and read replicas. Amazon Aurora Serverless v2 is ideal for a broad set of applications. For example, enterprises that have hundreds of thousands of applications, or software as a service (SaaS) vendors that have multi-tenant environments with hundreds or thousands of databases, can use Aurora Serverless v2 to manage database capacity across the entire fleet.

Aurora Serverless v2 is available for the MySQL 8.0- and PostgreSQL 13-compatible editions of Amazon Aurora. For pricing details and Region availability, visit Amazon Aurora Pricing. To learn more, read the documentation, and get started by creating an Aurora Serverless v2 database using only a few steps in the AWS Management Console.
