DB Instances that you create using Amazon RDS come with default MySQL configuration settings that will work for most of your needs. If you need to customize these settings, Amazon RDS enables you to do so using DB Parameter Groups. However, changing these settings can have unintended effects ranging from degraded performance to system crashes. As a result, changing configuration parameters from recommended values should be attempted only by advanced users who wish to assume the risks introduced by modifying the default settings. For those advanced users, this guide describes how to deploy DB Parameter Groups while minimizing the impact and risk of introducing unintended or detrimental impacts to your DB Instances. For an introduction to DB Parameter Groups, see the Amazon RDS Developer Guide.

To achieve a higher level of availability and redundancy, Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers can deploy their applications and services across multiple regions. While it is simple for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances to communicate with each other across regions over the Internet, enabling cross-region communication within a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environment requires additional configuration. While AWS current does not provide an end-to-end, cross-region VPC connectivity solution, customers can achieve this on their own with third-party virtual private network (VPN) solutions. This whitepaper describes how customers can leverage the Astaro Security Gateway Amazon Machine Image (AMI) to establish cross-region VPC connections between EC2 instances in one region and a VPC virtual private gateway (VGW) in another region.
