To get started, choose the DB Engine below and click Select

Step 2:Production?

Do you plan to use this database for production purposes?

For databases used in production or pre-production we recommend:

  • Multi-AZ Deployment for high availability (99.95% monthly up time SLA)
  • Provisioned IOPS Storage for fast, consistent performance

Billing is based upon the RDS pricing table. An instance which uses these features is not eligible for the RDS Free Usage Tier.

  • Yes, use Multi-AZ Deployment and Provisioned IOPS Storage as defaults while creating this instance
  • No, this instance is intended for use outside of production or under the RDS Free Usage Tier
