Awesome. I just read a blog post comparing RDS with a custom tuned EC2/MySQL instance that had significantly higher performance, partially because of the InnoDB plugin vs bulit-in.

We just moved to RDS a few weeks ago from our own maintained EC2/MySQL instance and have been happy so far. It feels great to get these enhancements for "free" with someone else doing the dirty work and exposing the upgrade via an API call.

Now you just need to add SSD storage as an option both on EC2 and RDS ;)


Please please please look to support postgresql! Did I mention please?


Yep, this is an old thread and I just posted this in the related forum post but I agree 100% with PE, PLEASE add PostgreSQL support to RDS.

At least tell us - is this anywhere on the roadmap? Thanks!
