Amazon RDS Optimized Reads is now available for up to 2X faster queries on Amazon RDS for MariaDB

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for MariaDB now supports Optimized Reads for up to 2X faster query processing compared to previous generation instances. Optimized Read-enabled instances achieve faster query processing by placing temporary tables generated by the MariaDB server on the NVMe SSD-based block-level instance storage that’s physically connected to the host server. Complex queries that utilize temporary tables, such as queries involving sorts, hash aggregations, high-load joins, and Common Table Expressions (CTEs) can now execute up to 2X faster with Optimized Reads on RDS for MariaDB.
