AWS CSA Professional 2020 chapter 2 RDS which I have done before seems to jump 2 minutes 30 seconds in on to a discussion about Maria DB without any context beforehand. Is it just me?
The switch to the diagram at 2:30 is part of the lecture. It’s designed to show you differences between Multi-AZ and Read Replica architectures. I use MariaDB just as an illustration…it’s one of the types of RDS databases you can deploy.
Hi Scott – a quick update to Sola’s comment and your response. If I hadn’t read Sola’s question and your response, I would have had similar feeling Sola had. Possibly in a future update, the slide heading may be changed to give the user context that the slide is to highlight the difference between Multi-AZ and Read Replica architectures as the previous slide wasn’t talking about this concept.
