Amazon RDS Room for Improvement
The solution needs RDS Mysql support for both MySQL 8 and MariaDB.
The Performance Monitor they have is a little clanky, at least in regards to the UI.
I wish they had designed a better MySQL Monitoring solution. I personally like SolarWinds DPA.
Being unable to select Out-file is annoying. They do support select Out-files into S3 but only on Aurora. It would be nice if they had implemented that feature in RDS MySQL.View full review »

The only thing that I can say is, you have to be really careful about the Cloud provision plannings - meaning that you should calculate the cost carefully due to the fact that the bill is increased sharply if you increase the limit. You have to provision what you need per month.
The solution charges for technical support, which is something they should change, at least for those organizations on tier one.View full review »
If you are a very tech-savvy guy who is a DBA, there are certain limitations due to how it's been implemented. You cannot do a lot of platform-level changes if that's how it's been set up, however, it's not required actually. Those limitations have not stopped anything, not stopped us from doing anything. That said, someone more technical may not like the limitations. Platform-level changes are not allowed.
The solution is a bit expensive.View full review »
The price could be better. We have better options like Microsoft Azure to use in the cloud. I also don't think it's very scalable.View full review »

When you are using it for the first time, it is a little bit hard to configure. The first-time configuration is not very easy. It should be easier to configure.
Its installation should also be simpler. Currently, its installation is very complex.View full review »
It would be better if it integrated seamlessly with Microsoft products. Our clients use the Microsoft Tally application server. We already tried to create a reputation, for example, an on-premises environment from our client to Amazon RDS using the Microsoft Tally server. But we couldn't do that because we didn't have a strong user in RDS. We couldn't create a reputation from an on-premises environment from the Microsoft Tally server to RDS. I think that it would be a good implementation, and it would help us with this case.View full review »
