Experiencing challenges with your database as a service (DBaaS)? Join us as we compare TiDB to Amazon Aurora. We will explore TiDB’s distributed database architecture and how it elastically scales out transactional applications with strong ACID consistency and no system downtime. While Amazon Aurora offers horizontal scalability through read replicas, it relies solely on a single primary instance for all write operations. Additional scaling out requires manual sharding.

In this webinar, PingCAP Senior Solution Engineer Matthew Penaroza will evaluate the distinct characteristics and ease of use of both database platforms, exploring:

  • Where each database delivers value
  • The key differences in scale for both TiDB and Amazon Aurora
  • Vendor flexibility and the pitfalls of vendor lock-in

We hope to see you there.
