In this episode, Emily and Dave chat with Keyur Diwan Sr. Product Manager, Amazon RDS. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a collection of managed services that makes it simple to set up, operate, and scale databases in the cloud. Amazon RDS recently launched fully managed Blue/Green Deployments to help you with safer, simpler, and faster updates to your Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS databases. Blue/Green Deployments create a fully managed staging environment that allows you to deploy and test production changes, keeping your current production database safe. With a single click, you can promote the staging environment to be the new production system in as fast as a minute, with no changes to your application and no data loss. Keyur walks us through this new feature, how to get started, how customers are using it today, and what’s next for RDS.
