Migrating for MySQL rds to Aurora RDS

by Chris Muench   Last Updated January 13, 2018 19:06 PM

I understand migrating to Aurora is simply a matter of creating read replica from MySQL source and then promoting when caught up and stopping writes on MySQL rds previous master.

I use route 53 dns that has a cname record. My plan is to just change the dns to Aurora cluster but not sure if that is instant? Is there a way to stop the old MySQL rds instance so it can’t be written to?
