Up to 10x faster exports to S3 for snapshot exports for Amazon Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. The performance improvement is automatically applied to all types of database snapshot exports, including manual snapshots, automated system snapshots, and snapshots created by Amazon Backup.

With this capability, customers can export data up to 10x faster from an Amazon Aurora database and store it in an Amazon S3 bucket using Amazon CLI or Amazon Web Services Management Console. After the data is exported, they can analyze the exported data using Amazon Athena or other tools/services. The export process runs in the background and doesn't affect the performance of active database instances.

Amazon Aurora is designed for unparalleled high performance and availability at global scale with full MySQL and PostgreSQL compatibility. It provides built-in security, continuous backups, serverless compute, up to 15 read replicas, automated multi-Region replication, and integrations with other Amazon Web Services services.
