He been using AWS RDS for like 4 years now, & its the best Database management tool we ever tried. Here its super easy to operate & scale your database. The console is easy to understand & somehow intuitive if you been working with databases in past. Multi-AZ feature gives you power if you cannot afford any downtime. RDS takes backup automatically so no worries of losing any data.
Amazon RDS security is not a quite high level. Also with so many NoSQL databases coming up these days, RDS is a difficult choice to make given that it lags behind those NoSql databases.
The best thing about AWS RDS is that it supports various types of databases including widely used MySQL, so one can easily migrate their existing or new database(s). The other best feature of AWS RDS is its availability, it is one of the best when compared to its competitors. It is secured to manage the relation database of both website(s) or app(s).
