Amazon RDS vs Books: What are the differences?

What is Amazon RDS? Set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. Amazon RDS gives you access to the capabilities of a familiar MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database engine. This means that the code, applications, and tools you already use today with your existing databases can be used with Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS automatically patches the database software and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery. You benefit from the flexibility of being able to scale the compute resources or storage capacity associated with your Database Instance (DB Instance) via a single API call.

What is Books? An immutable double-entry accounting database service (by Square). It is an immutable double-entry accounting database service. It supports many clients and businesses at global scale, leaning on Google Cloud Spanner and Google Kubernetes Engine to make that possible.

Amazon RDS and Books belong to "SQL Database as a Service" category of the tech stack.
