Amazon Aurora supports in-place upgrades from MySQL 5.7 to 8.0

Starting today, you can perform an in-place upgrade of your Amazon Aurora  database cluster from Amazon Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition 2 (with MySQL 5.7 compatibility) to Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition 3 (with MySQL 8.0 compatibility). Instead of backing up and restoring the database to the new version, you can upgrade with just a few clicks in the Amazon RDS Management Console or by using the AWS SDK or CLI.
