An Introduction to Amazon Aurora

Amazon Aurora is a relational database service for OLTP workloads offered as part of Amazon Web Services (AWS). In this talk, we describe how Aurora brings a novel architecture to the relational database by pushing redo processing to a multi-tenant scale-out storage service, purpose-built for Aurora. We describe how doing so not only reduces network traffic, but also allows for fast crash recovery, failovers to replicas without loss of data, and fault-tolerant, self-healing storage.
