Will we ever access our managed databases through private IP?
So I’ve started using the managed databases, granted I impulsively did it, not for leaving MySQL intentionally, I would have stayed if that launched first, but because of a reliable cluster.
But anyways. Is there a special case as to why we’re only using a domain to access our cluster instead of IP? Such as routing behind the address due to it being a cluster, or simply out of proxying and security?
As I transitioned over I only noticed an additional 2ms-5ms in latency vs using a local database through socket, which is not bad at all, but I wonder if directly connecting through a private IP would be beneficial over the domain, because currently, I don’t know if we’re routing directly to the management database in the same datacenter or not.
Anyways, thanks for taking the time to look over the question, it’s been on my mind for the past week.
