- Improve your database update process with Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora MySQL Blue/Green Deployments.
- Boost Amazon RDS for MySQL performance with Amazon RDS Optimized Reads and Amazon RDS Optimized Writes.
- Amazon RDS gets Torn Write Prevention, enabling you to turn off double write operations on MySQL and MariaDB databases.
Amazon DocumentDB Announcements
