Any workload


Deploy a transactional database service with replication, automatic failover and persistent storage configured out of the box.


Or, an analytical database service with parallel processing and low-cost object storage (e.g., S3) for high performance analytics at any scale.


And for modern applications requiring fast transactions, historical data and more powerful analytics, deploy a hybrid database service.
