Amazon EC2 now offers RDBMS


That is pretty amazing, since that was a big pain point for developing for EC2 powered systems. They support both Oracle and MySQL, in addition to SimpleDB, which is a non relational DB.

From the looks of things, however, there is a significant difference between the Oracle and MySQL offerings. MySQL is a DB limited to a single machine. They talk about the ability to dynamically scale the machine (which sounds just awesome) from small to extra large based on requirement, but not about multi instance databases.

Oracle, however, does have this ability, and it is supported on EC2. So you can increase you database horizontally, rather than vertically. At least, that is how I read things.

I found this to be extremely interesting.

Very cool. It has begin, the migration towards cloud computing. I think Amazon.com will do a very good job providing these databases for an affordable price. Next for them will probably be J2EE servers possibly with their own framework.
