Amazon RDS (MySQL) 海外メディア・リンクなど

Posted in Amazon by Agile Cat on October 28, 2009



昨日(09/10/27)のインターネット・メディアを賑わした、Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) β公開の開始というニュースですが、海外のメディアでも、とても好意的に報道されているという感じです。

Information Week: Amazon Offers MySQL Cloud Service, Cuts Server Fees
eWeek: Amazon Launches Relational Database for the Cloud
Data Center Knowledge: Amazon Offers MySQL in the Cloud

一点だけ、たしか Data Center Knowledge だったと思いますが、FathomDB などを圧迫することになり、AWS のエコシステムに影響を及ぼすのではという危惧が指摘されていました。

以下は、Wall Street Journal からです:

以下は、Amazon AWS からのメールの抜粋です:

● Simple to Deploy – Quickly create a new production-ready relational database with a simple API call.
● Managed – Amazon RDS handles generic, time-consuming database management tasks, such as patch management and backup.
● Compatible – All of your existing MySQL database tools, applications, and drivers will still work.
● Scalable – With a simple API call you can scale the compute and storage resources available to your database to meet your business needs and application load.
● Reliable – Amazon RDS runs on the same highly reliable infrastructure used by other Amazon Web Services. Amazon RDS also gives you additional peace of mind by providing an automated database backup facility.
● Inexpensive – You pay very low rates and only for the resources you actually consume. There are no long-term contracts or up-front commitments to use Amazon RDS.

● Double Extra Large: 34.2 GB memory, 13 ECU (4 virtual cores with 3.25 ECU each), 850 GB storage, 64-bit platform
● Quadruple Extra Large: 68.4 GB memory, 26 ECU (8 virtual cores with 3.25 ECU each), 1690 GB storage, 64-bit platform.

    nsharp さん、こんにちは。

    Hadoop WorldのJP Morgan Chaseのセッションでは、もう、特定のデータベースベンダーに、膨大なライセンス料を支払う時代ではないという発言がありました。 これは、O社を指してのことだと思いますが、なんか、大きなウネリを感じますね。

    でも、そこまで言っちゃうと、SQL Azure がカワイソウ。。。
