Amazon Aurora Serverless with PostgreSQL compatibility is now available in the Europe (Frankfurt) region. 

Aurora Serverless is an on-demand, auto-scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora (MySQL-compatible and PostgreSQL-compatible editions), where the database will automatically start up, shut down, and scale capacity up or down based on your application's needs. It's a simple, cost-effective option for infrequent, intermittent, or unpredictable workloads. With Amazon Aurora Serverless, you no longer have to provision or manage database capacity. You simply create an endpoint through the Amazon RDS Management Console, and Aurora Serverless handles the rest. You pay by the second, and only when the database is in use. 

Read about Aurora Serverless on the AWS Blog, the Aurora Serverless product page, and in the Aurora documentation. 

Amazon Aurora is a fully managed relational database that combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. With this launch, Aurora Serverless with PostgreSQL compatibility is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt) and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions.
