A fully managed, highly available database proxy for Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS)
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups. Amazon RDS Proxy sits between your application and your relational database to efficiently manage connections to the database and improve the scalability of the application. By pooling and sharing already established database connections, RDS Proxy allows you to efficiently scale to many more connections from your serverless application. RDS Proxy also enables you to maintain predictable database performance by controlling the total number of database connections that are opened. Finally, RDS Proxy preserves the availability of your serverless application by denying unserviceable application connections that may degrade the performance of your database.
