Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a web service that makes it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud.
Relational databases are complex. In all of my introductory courses I want to give you a high level look at the product. This isn’t a deep dive course. This is a… “ahhh, that’s where I backup my database or limit the user connections.” This is a… “ahhh, that’s how I install MySQL on Windows” course.
MySQL is a full-featured relational database management system (RDBMS) that competes with the likes of Oracle DB and Microsoft’s SQL Server. The RDS cloud implementation is a full featured MySQL RDMS.
The basic building block of Amazon RDS is the DB instance. A DB instance is an isolated database environment in the cloud. A DB instance can contain multiple user-created databases, and you can access it by using the same tools and applications that you use with a stand-alone database instance.
Databases hold structured data. It’s important to understand the difference between structured and unstructured data. MySQL is a relational database. The data we place in relational database has structure because we define how the data is to be stored using data types.
In the relational database, we model data like products, categories, tags, etc., using tables. A table contains columns and rows. It is like a spreadsheet.
Because we deal with a large amount of data, we need a way to define the databases, tables, views, stored procedures and other objects process data more effectively.
Thank you for your interest in “The Fast Track Introduction to MySQL on RDS.”
