Amazon RDS vs DigitalOcean Managed Databases: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon RDS as "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. On the other hand, DigitalOcean Managed Databases is detailed as "Fully hosted and managed database engines for your applications, so you can focus on building, not patching". Build apps and store data in minutes with easy access to one or more databases and sleep better knowing your data is backed up and optimized.
Amazon RDS and DigitalOcean Managed Databases can be categorized as "SQL Database as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Amazon RDS are:
- Pre-configured Parameters
- Monitoring and Metrics
- Automatic Software Patching
On the other hand, DigitalOcean Managed Databases provides the following key features:
- Multi-node database clustering
- Automated failover support
- Daily backups with Point in Time Recovery (7 days)
