Amazon Relational Database Services (Amazon RDS){1}

by Miguel V
The article I chose, Amazon Web Services Announces New Managed Services for Windows Developers Worldwide, talks about Amazon annoucing a new managed services for windows developers with the launch Amazon RDS for Microsoft SQL Server and ASP.NET called AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Business can use “Amazon RDS to offload the operational responsibilities of their MySQL and Oracle database.” The article also talks about AWS Elastic Beanstalk which gives developers “an even easier way to quickly deploy and manage their Java, PHP and ASP.NET applications in the AWS Cloud.” AWS works by having the user upload their application and it will automatically handle the deployment details of capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling, and application health monitoring.

I like this article because I believe that this application can be very useful for any developer that needs to access his application from multiple locations without having to physical carry it to each location. This article relates to what we are doing in class because the AWS work well with MySQL databases.
