If you’re running a MySQL database at scale, there’s a good chance you’re sharding your database deployment. Sharding is a useful way to increase the scale of your deployment, but it has drawbacks like higher costs, high administration overheard and lower elasticity. It’s harder to grow or shrink a sharded database deployment to match your traffic patterns. In this session, we will discuss and demonstrate how to use AWS Database Migration Service to consolidate multiple MySQL shards into an Amazon Aurora cluster to reduce cost, improve elasticity and make it easier to manage your database.
Learn how to scale your MySQL database at reduced cost and higher elasticity, by consolidating multiple shards into one Amazon Aurora cluster.
