Question

dbaas geographic redundancy?

If I am looking for geographic redundancy for a MySQL database (dbaas), would I configure a read only database in a different region? Is it possible to convert that read only database to a master database if the primary region went down?

How are others handling DR with dbaas?

Thanks!

Hello,

  1. Yes, you can configure a read only database in a different region. Read only node provide geographically distinct horizontal read scaling.
  2. No, it is not possible to convert read only database to a master database if the primary region went down. But, All database clusters have automated failover, meaning they automatically detect and replace degraded or failing nodes.
  3. Managed database clusters include daily backups with point-in-time recovery (PITR), standby nodes for high availability. Database clusters must have at least one standby node to be highly available because standby nodes provide redundancy for the primary node.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Priyanka
