Amazon RDS on VMware Adds Support for Read Replica

By GIXnews

To provide enhanced performance and scalability, Amazon RDS on VMware adds support for read replicas for MySQL and PostgreSQL databases. You can create read replicas of a source DB instance to serve high-volume application read traffic, thereby increasing aggregate read throughput. A read replica can also be promoted to become a standalone DB instance if the source DB instance fails.
