You can customize RDS specifications through Alibaba Cloud’s official website or APIs. After the order is confirmed, RDS generates the specified instance instantly. RDS can work with ECS to reduce the application response time and public traffic fees.
Initially, you can purchase an RDS instance that meets the existing business requirements. When requirements on the database and data storage capacity change, you can flexibly adjust the instance specifications without any interruptions to the service.
The use method of RDS is similar to that of the native database engine. You can get started easily without further learning. In addition, RDS is compatible with your current programs and tools. Data can be migrated to RDS using a data import and export tool with minimal labor required.
Ease of management
Alibaba Cloud ensures the normal operation of RDS through routine maintenance and management, such as hardware/software fault processing and database patch upgrades. You can independently perform database addition, deletion, restart, backup, recovery, and other management operations through the Alibaba Cloud console.
