Run highly available and reliable MySQL databases in AWS

In the last little while, Amazon RDS has added some exciting new features that greatly reduce the management burden of running highly available and reliable MySQL databases. These include:

Management Console - A web-based AWS Management Console to launch Database Instances (including highly available and reliable Multi-AZ deployments), take real-time snapshots of a DB Instance, and view important database statistics.
Multi-AZ Deployments - Using a single API call, you can create a MySQL Database Instance that is synchronously replicated across Availability Zones to provide enhanced data protection and availability in the face of planned or unplanned outages.
Now in all AWS Regions - Amazon RDS is now available in all Amazon Web Services Regions: US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Northern California), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore).

These recent announcements complement the core Amazon RDS functionality, which enables users to quickly and easily deploy MySQL Database Instances with parameters pre-configured for reliable high performance. Amazon RDS also offers both automated backups and DB Snapshots to allow you to define your own data retention policy and perform point-in-time database restore operations. Using a single, simple API call, scaling the compute or storage resources available to your database is remarkably easy.
