Amazon Aurora vs. MariaDB SkySQL

Which AWS-hosted DBaaS is best for you?

Are you an AWS customer looking for a MariaDB/MySQL database? Until recently, that meant choosing between Amazon’s RDS and Aurora, with Aurora being the better option when your app requires high availability and high performance. But now you have another option: MariaDB SkySQL.

SkySQL is a database-as-a-service (DBaaS) built and supported by MariaDB. It’s the first DBaaS to offer distributed SQL for applications with the most demanding scalability and elasticity requirements – plus continuous availability and zero downtime, thanks to an advanced database proxy and full redundancy.

  • Architecture
  • Updates to the underlying database
