Data API Now Assisted By Amazon Aurora Serverless MySQL 5.6

Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database designed for the cloud, which unites the performance and availability of traditional enterprise databases with the lucidity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. Amazon Aurora Serverless is an on-demand, auto-scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora (MySQL-compatible edition), where the database will automatically start up, shut down, and scale capacity up or down related to your application's requirements. It allows you to execute your database in the cloud without handling any database instances. It's an easy, cost-effective choice for unusual, irregular, or uncertain workloads. Now Amazon Aurora Serverless MySQL 5.6 can be accessed with the help of the built-in Data API allowing you to access Aurora Serverless with web services-based applications, containing AWS Lambda, AWS AppSync, and AWS Cloud9. The Data API lets you to concentrate on creating your applications without bothering about handling database connections or connection pools. Rather, now you can use SQL commands against an Aurora Serverless cluster by only inducing an API endpoint offered by the Data API and the Data API handles the managing database connections and returning data. Further, the Data API leverages database credentials saved in AWS Secrets Manager, removing the requirement to proceed credentials in the API calls. Refer the documentation to know further on how to start with Data API. This feature Data API is accessible in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Regions.
