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.
