MySQL is one of the most popular open-source databases in the world. As a key component of the open-source software bundle LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and Perl/PHP/Python), MySQL has been widely applied to different scenarios.
Alibaba Cloud has polished AliSQL for more than five years and released over 300 patches to make AliSQL more competent in processing highly concurrent requests. In addition, Alibaba Cloud has introduced features such as thread pool, parallel replication, and implicit primary key to increase IOPS and make your database instances more stable.
ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL has received more than 10 security certificates from both China and the international community.
It uses transparent data encryption (TDE) to encrypt source code data and protect data from being stolen. ApsaraDB for RDS running MySQL 5.7 or 8.0 supports SSL encryption, ECS security group, disk encryption, Bring Your Own Key (BYOK), and rotation of keys.
CloudDBA is integrated into the ApsaraDB for RDS console. It monitors the performance metrics and slow SQL statements of your database instances and provides suggestions to locate performance issues.
ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL is certified by more than 10 authorities such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 20000, Service Organization Control (SOC), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and Grade III Protection of Information Security.
You can configure IP address whitelists to only allow access to your database instances from specific entities. To implement more stringent access control, you can create your database instances in VPCs.
Protection and encryption
Anti-DDoS protection is provided to safeguard public IP addresses. SSL encryption helps defend against man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. TDE is used to encrypt data saved to disks. If the network isolation mode is set to enhanced whitelist, your database instances are protected against SQL injections and data breaches.
The SQL audit feature records information about all access sources and behaviors to make security incidents and faults traceable.
ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL is the first database service that guarantees 99.99% availability in its Service Level Agreement (SLA).
The primary and secondary instances reside on different servers and automatically synchronize data with each other. When the primary instance is unavailable, its secondary instance takes over the services.
Local disaster recovery
The primary and secondary instances reside in different zones with independent power supplies and networks to make your database instances more reliable.
Remote disaster recovery
Your database instances reside in different regions from their disaster recovery instances. ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL uses Alibaba Cloud Data Transmission Service (DTS) to execute real-time data synchronization between these two types of instances. When a primary database instance is unavailable, its disaster recovery instance takes over the services.
Flexible and scalable
You can select subscription or pay-as-you-go billing to better meet your business needs.
Selection of RDS editions
There are three RDS editions: Basic, High-availability, and Enterprise.
