AWS re:Invent 2015 | (ISM304) From Oracle to Amazon RDS MySQL and Amazon Aurora

Published on Oct 09, 2015

Amazon RDS MySQL offers a highly scalable, available and high performing database service at a fraction of the cost of a commercially licensed database provider. To take advantage of Amazon RDS MySQL benefits such as Multi-AZ replication and ease of administration, Gallup transitioned its Reporting and Analytics platforms to AWS. Swapan Golla, Technical Architect at Gallup, will talk about the benefits the company has seen moving from an on-premise Oracle deployment to RDS MySQL. Learn about the solution architecture and how they tuned their schemas and application code to take full advantage of the scalability and performance of RDS. He will also talk about the next steps in the team's roadmap, which involve Amazon Aurora.
