Airbnb chose Amazon RDS because it simplifies much of the time-consuming administrative tasks typically associated with databases. Airbnb currently uses Multi-Availability Zone (Multi-AZ) deployment to further automate its database replication and augment data durability. Airbnb was able to complete its entire database migration to Amazon RDS with only 15 minutes of downtime.
