Getting Started with Serverless Architectures – August 2016 Monthly Webinar Series

Relational databases are a cornerstone of the enterprise IT landscape, powering business-critical applications of many kinds. Though they have been around for a while, current commercial relational databases have lagged behind in innovation. Amazon Aurora, a managed database service built for the cloud, is intended to change that. It fulfils the high-performance, high-availability needs of business-critical applications with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness. In this session, we will look into how Aurora fits the needs of applications built and bought by enterprises to power their business.

Learning Objectives:
