Mar 13 2020ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL
Target customers: 1. Users who need to process more access requests. 2. Users who require automated read/write splitting. 3. Users who need to optimize short-lived connections between applications and databases. Features released: ApsaraDB for RDS instances running MySQL 5.6 in the High-availability Edition (with local SSDs) support the Dedicated Proxy feature. This feature allows you to create a dedicated proxy for your RDS instance. It provides the following benefits: 1. The dedicated proxy is allocated with a unified proxy endpoint. This endpoint is free of charge and remains valid as long as you do not disable the Dedicated Proxy feature. You do not need to update endpoints on your application. This reduces O&M costs. 2. The dedicated proxy uses independent computing resources. You do not need to compete for resources with other users. This ensures the stability of your database system. 3. The dedicated proxy can be resized to process more access requests. 4. The dedicated proxy offers advanced functions, such as read/write splitting, transaction splitting, and short-lived connection optimization.
