CockroachDB vs. Amazon Aurora: Battle of the Cloud Databases

Published Wednesday, Jan 6, 2021

Watch the webinar

Looking for the best cloud SQL database? Join us as we compare CockroachDB to Amazon Aurora to see which database truly is the best fit for all types of applications.

In this webinar, we will walk through workloads of each database and compare the value covering:
  • The key differences in scale of both CockroachDB and Aurora.
  • The true cost of each cloud database.
  • Multi-cloud and the pitfalls of the vendor lock-in.
CockroachDB’s distributed architecture survives failures across regions, delivering truly elastic and global scale for all your transactions. While AWS Aurora can help scale in-region reads, its single write master will fail and any regional extensions will be costly.
