You’ve always been able to migrate an Amazon RDS for MySQL database to Amazon Aurora by taking a snapshot and restoring it into an Aurora cluster. But how does the Aurora database catch up to updates that happened since the snapshot was taken? This used to require setting up replication manually between the two databases. Starting today, it can be handled through a simple AWS Management Console interface. The console will take a snapshot, restore it and replicate the remaining changes all in one step, making migration to Amazon Aurora easier than ever. To learn more, please see Jeff Barr’s blog.
The updated Amazon WorkDocs sync client makes it easier to free up storage space on your PC or Mac. Now you can stop syncing content that has been shared with you by simply deleting the relevant files or folders in your Amazon WorkDocs “Shared with me” folder on your computer. This action updates your Selective Sync settings automatically, and removes the content from your computer. Content is not deleted from your Amazon WorkDocs account; you can still access this content at any time using the Amazon WorkDocs web client and your other computers, and you can re-enable sync using the Amazon WorkDocs Selective Sync settings. In addition, the Amazon WorkDocs sync client performance has been improved, and now offers faster sync using less CPU and memory.
You can now use the AWS CloudFormation console to list stacks that are importing output values from another stack.
