Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for MySQL now delivers up to 3X higher write throughput at no additional charge, starting with RDS for MySQL version 8.0.35. If you're running RDS for MySQL version 8.0.34 or lower, you can upgrade to RDS for MySQL version 8.0.35 to benefit from this performance improvement. We recommend that you upgrade to the latest minor versions to fix known security vulnerabilities in prior versions of MySQL, and to benefit from the bug fixes, performance improvements, and new functionality added by the MySQL community.

You can leverage automatic minor version upgrades to automatically upgrade your databases to more recent minor versions during scheduled maintenance windows. Learn more about upgrading your database instances, including automatic minor version upgrades, in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Amazon RDS for MySQL makes it simple to set up, operate, and scale MySQL deployments in the cloud. Learn more about pricing details and regional availability at Amazon RDS for MySQL. Create or update a fully managed Amazon RDS for MySQL database in the Amazon RDS Management Console.
