Amazon RDS vs GenieDB: What are the differences?

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; GenieDB: Multi-master, multi-cloud, geo-distributed MySQL database. GenieDB’s DBaaS uses multi-master replication and multi-regional distribution on multiple cloud infrastructures (Amazon AWS, IBM Softlayer, DigitalOcean, Rackspace Cloud, and Google Cloud) to help reduce latency, eliminate downtime, and easily scale your database.

Amazon RDS and GenieDB can be primarily classified 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, GenieDB provides the following key features:

  • Multi-master replication with auto-conflict resolution
  • Geo-distribution across multiple regions and cloud providers using eventual consistency model with geo-compliance
  • Auto-recovery and healing with re-synchronization

            While we initially started off running our own Postgres cluster, we evaluated RDS and found it to be an excellent fit for us.

            The failovers, manual scaling, replication, Postgres upgrades, and pretty much everything else has been super smooth and reliable.

            We'll probably need something a little more complex in the future, but RDS performs admirably for now.

            We are using RDS for managing PostgreSQL and legacy MSSQL databases.

            Unfortunately while RDS works great for managing the PostgreSQL systems, MSSQL is very much a second class citizen and they don't offer very much capability. Infact, in order to upgrade instance storage for MSSQL we actually have to spin up a new cluster and migrate the data over.

            Our PostgreSQL servers, where we keep the bulk of Wirkn data, are hosted on the fantastically easy and reliable AWS RDS platform.

            We use Aurora for our OLTP database, it provides significant speed increases on top of MySQL without the need to manage it

            RDS allows us to replicate the development databases locally as well as making it available to CircleCI.
