Fingers crossed for an upgrade path to MySQL 5.6 from 5.5 that doesn't require to dump and import 400 GB! :)

Gctaylor

Very nice. As a side note, my kingdom for Postgres support. I would wager that there's a lot of other people wanting this, as well. Take my money, I want to throw it at you!

Bbhermann

Nice. Any news about RDS MS SQL server replication?

Thomas

What about the ability to load balance read replicas? This feature is way overdue

Jeremy

+1 for Postgres. "Shut up and take my money!"

laura-

How much was the replica creation time decreased by?

We explored using it before, but the amount of time it locked the master for was too much. I've always thought it would be awesome if the replica creation was fast enough.

Chris Adams

Any chance of cross-region replicas? I could expand my AWS usage tomorrow if it didn't require chucking RDS and building an equivalent.

Tom

+1 for a smooth upgrade path to MySQL 5.6 from 5.5.

From http://aws.typepad.com/aws/2013/07/mysql-56-support-for-amazon-rds.html
> ''Upgrading an existing database instance from MySQL 5.5 to MySQL 5.6 is not currently supported. However, we intend to provide this functionality in the near future. In the meantime, if you would like to port your existing MySQL 5.5 database to MySQL 5.6, you can use mysqldump to export your database from your existing MySQL 5.5 database instance and import it into a new MySQL 5.6 database instance.''

2 months is the "near future" in my book.
