The RDS Aurora MySQL/PostgreSQL capabilities of AWS extend the HA capabilities of RDS read replicas and Multi-AZ.

In this presentation we will discuss the different capabilities and HA configurations with RDS Aurora including:

* RDS Cluster single instance
* RDS Cluster multiple instances (writer + 1 or more readers)
* RDS Cluster multi-master
* RDS Global Cluster
* RDS Cluster options for multi-regions

Each option has its relative merits and limitations. Each will depend on your business requirements, global needs and budget.

This presentation will include setup, monitoring and failover evaluations for the attendee with the goal to provide a feature matrix of when/how to consider each option as well as provide some details of the subtle differences Aurora provides.

This presentation is not going to go into the technical details of RDS Aurora's underlying infrastructure or a feature by feature comparison of AWS RDS to AWS RDS Aurora.
