Amazon RDS MySQL

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) allows you to deploy scalable MySQL servers in minutes with cost-efficient and resizable hardware capacity.

You can ingest data from your Amazon RDS MySQL database using Hevo Pipelines and replicate it to a Destination of your choice. Hevo recommends connecting to a read-replica of your master MySQL database, however, this is not mandatory. A read-replica reflects the changes to your master database in near real-time, and can reduce the load on the master database by serving all “read” requests. The Role attribute of the instance identifies its type.


  • Hevo only fetches tables from the MySQL database. It does not fetch other entities such as functions, stored procedures, views, and triggers.

    To fetch views, you can create individual Pipelines in Custom SQL mode. However, some limitations may arise based on the type of data synchronization, the query mode, or the number of Events. Contact Hevo Support for more details.
