Amazon RDS for SQL Server now supports Cross Region Read Replica in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Cross Region Read Replica enables managed disaster recovery capability for mission critical databases by allowing a read replica in another region be "promoted" as a new standalone production database. This feature also supports data proximity by enabling replicas be placed closer to the application users of a given region to reduce read latencies. Additionally, this feature allows Amazon RDS for SQL Server customers to offload their read workload from the primary DB Instance, and also scale out read workloads over a farm of up to fifteen read replicas that can reside in any China region. To get started, visit the Amazon RDS SQL Server User Guide.
Amazon RDS for SQL Server makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale SQL Server deployments in the cloud. See Amazon RDS for SQL Server Pricing for pricing details and regional availability.
