Support for Amazon's RDS in the Cloud

Registered by Duncan McGreggor on 2009-11-17

txAWS wants to provide a full cloud API for developers who need the benefits of async programming in their applications and/or scripts. Providing support for Relational Database Service in txAWS is part of this effort.

The steps that need to be supported are the following (from Amazon):

 * Launch a database instance (DB Instance), selecting the DB Instance class and storage capacity that best meets your needs.

 * Select the desired retention period (in number of days) for your automated database backups. Amazon RDS will automatically back up your database during your predefined backup window. For typical workloads, this allows you to restore to any point in time within your retention period, up to the last five minutes. You can also restore from a DB Snapshot, a user-initiated backup that can be run at any time with a simple API call.

 * Connect to your DB Instance using your favorite database tool or programming language. Since you have direct access to a full-featured MySQL database, any tool designed for the MySQL engine will work unmodified with Amazon RDS.

 * Monitor the compute and storage resource utilization of your DB Instance, for no additional charge, via Amazon CloudWatch. If at any point you need additional capacity, you can scale the compute and storage resources associated with your DB Instance with a simple API call.
