Enterprise Applications

Amazon Aurora is a great option for any enterprise application that can use a relational database. Compared to commercial databases, Amazon Aurora can help cut down your database costs by 90% or more while improving reliability and availability of the database. Amazon Aurora being a fully managed service helps you save time by automating time consuming tasks such as provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair.

Software as a Service (SaaS) Applications

SaaS applications often use architectures that are multi-tenant, which requires a great deal of flexibility in instance and storage scaling along with high performance and reliability. Amazon Aurora provides all of these features in a managed database offering, helping SaaS companies focus on building high quality applications without worrying about the underlying database that powers the application.
