Amazon RDS for MariaDB
Set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud with just a few clicks
MariaDB is a popular open source relational database created by the original developers of MySQL. Amazon RDS makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale MariaDB server deployments in the cloud. With Amazon RDS, you can deploy scalable MariaDB cloud databases in minutes with cost-efficient and resizable hardware capacity.
Amazon RDS frees you up to focus on your application by managing time-consuming database administration tasks, including backups, upgrades, software patching, monitoring, scaling, and replication.
Amazon RDS supports MariaDB Server versions 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6, which means that the code, applications, and tools you already use today can be used with Amazon RDS.
Easier, managed deployments
It takes only a few steps in the AWS Management Console to launch and connect to a production-ready MariaDB database in minutes. Amazon RDS for MariaDB database instances are pre-configured with parameters and settings for the server type you have selected. Database parameter groups provide granular control and fine-tuning of your MariaDB database. When you need to make a database update, Amazon RDS Blue/Green Deployments are designed to make it safer, simpler, and faster.
Fast, predictable performance
Amazon RDS provides two SSD-backed storage options for your MariaDB database. General Purpose storage provides cost-effective storage for small or medium-sized workloads. For high-performance OLTP applications, Provisioned IOPS delivers consistent performance of up to 256,000 IOs per second. As your storage requirements grow you can provision additional storage on-the-fly with zero downtime. Amazon RDS Optimized Writes allows you to achieve up to 2x improved write transaction throughput, while Amazon RDS Optimized Reads provides you with up to 2x faster query processing.
Backup and recovery
High availability and read replicas
Amazon RDS Multi-AZ deployments provide enhanced availability and durability for your MariaDB databases, making them a natural fit for production database workloads. Amazon RDS Read Replicas are designed to make it easy to elastically scale out beyond the capacity constraints of a single database instance for read-heavy database workloads.
Monitoring and metrics
Amazon RDS provides Amazon CloudWatch metrics for your database instances at no additional charge and Amazon RDS Enhanced Monitoring provides access to over 50 CPU, memory, file system, and disk I/O metrics. View key operational metrics in the AWS Management Console, including compute/memory/storage capacity utilization, I/O activity, and instance connections.
Isolation and security
As a managed service, Amazon RDS provides a high level of security for your MariaDB databases. These include network isolation using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), encryption at rest using keys you create and control through AWS Key Management Service (KMS) and encryption of data in transit using SSL.
