As databases are often a key component of internet infrastructure, IT departments may be challenged by poor connection management from the application. The Heimdall Proxy helps developers, database administrators, and architects horizontally scale out and optimize connections through connection pooling for Amazon Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift without any application changes. As a result, you will reduce your database instance size and support higher user counts.
Horizontally scaling a SQL database involves separating the write-master from read-only servers. This allows the write server to perform dedicated write operations rather than processing redundant read queries. However, writing to one node and reading from another can result in inconsistent data due to synchronization delays. Heimdall Data offers a database proxy to help developers and architects achieve optimal scale from their Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora environment without any application changes.
