AWS MySQL / Aurora Read Replicas for Magento
August 2018 – As part of our new Titanium Series, and to compliment our S3Rocket S3 auto scale module, we are expecting to release our new S3Sonic Module in mid-August 2018.
This new HA module will allow the configuration and use of AWS Database Read Replicas from the Magento 2.2.5+ admin console. Read Replicas allow offloading database queries from the master DB, and then distribution among the AWS MySQL/Aurora read replicas. Overall this type of configuration will increase throughput, performance, and add DB redundancy.
Additionally, should the master database go offline for any reason, a read replica can simply be promoted to the new read/write Master in a few minutes, and all without data loss.
Used in conjunction with our S3Rocket module, and an AWS auto scale group, your Magento 2.2.x implementation will be bulletproof. That’s why we call it our titanium series.
