Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Blue/Green Deployments

A blue/green deployment copies a production database environment in a separate, synchronized staging environment. By using Amazon RDS Blue/Green Deployments, you can make changes to the database in the staging environment without affecting the production environment. For example, you can upgrade the major or minor DB engine version, change database parameters, or make schema changes in the staging environment. When you are ready, you can promote the staging environment to be the new production database environment. For more information, see Using Amazon RDS Blue/Green Deployments for database updates.

The Blue/Green Deployments feature is available for all versions of Aurora MySQL. The Blue/Green Deployments feature isn't available for Aurora PostgreSQL.

The Blue/Green Deployments feature is available in all Amazon Web Services Regions.
