“Our Account Control Management (ACM) application is a central component for many Autodesk applications, and usage has grown this year. ACM requires a high performance database with low-lag replication, automatic scaling, and MySQL compatibility. Amazon Aurora allowed us to increase our database connections and greatly improve our scalability, response times, and CPU utilization. Our customers’ experience improved in a short time so we’re looking into Aurora for additional applications.”
