MySQL Advanced Options


Enabling replication turns on a separate endpoint for MySQL read only instances. You can enable replication under the Configurations tab when Creating a MySQL service. You may not enable this after the service has been created. It's recommended to enable Replication in production environments or any environments you wish to decrease the chances of downtime. Read more about read replicas here.

Cost Optimization

Enabling Cost Optimization is not recommended for production environments. Cost optimization places your instances on Spot or Pre-emptible cloud instances which can incur random downtime. For best effort uptime, you must disable cost optimization.

(Storage) Persistence

MySQL has an optional (Storage) Persistence and Volume Size options available under the Advanced Options Tab.
