Percona Live 2021: A First Look at Aurora Serverless v2

The world of serverless databases on the cloud and on AWS is changing fast: I am very looking forward to be a speaker at Percona Live 2021, a community-focused event corganized by Percona for database developers and administrators and take a first look at Amazon Aurora Serverless v2. The event is free and will be held online running over two days. Abstract below, see you there!

A First Look at Aurora Serverless v2

During the latest re:Invent, AWS announced the next version of Amazon Aurora Serverless. The new version for the MySQL 5.7-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora scales in fraction of a second and introduces multi-AZ support, global databases, and read replicas. What are the di erences between v1 and v2? Why did AWS introduced an entirely separated new product? Is Aurora Serverless v1 a service to be already forgotten? A journey on the latest changes and a few tests running serverless databases on AWS.
