In today’s age, almost all applications are getting a bigger and bigger userbase, and serving more users means you need more optimized application. Optimization of applications has some limitations, and after some level, it’s not possible without enhancing/changing the application architecture. Most existing applications use relational databases, which are meant for monolithic architecture. This monolithic architecture and SQL queries are making them slow. It doesn’t matter how good and robust of a query you are writing; it has some certain threshold to deal with and will die afterward.

So, the million dollar question: Without changing the existing application’s architecture, how can we improve our application’s performance? The answer is AWS Aurora.
