Amazon Aurora icon

Amazon Aurora is a fully managed MySQL-compatible relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases —and it’s VERY fast (about 10 times as fast as Microsoft SQL). Amazon is trying to get more acceptance for the product, due to the fact that it is more expensive. However, Aurora is fully compatible with existing tools. Side note: PostgreSQL is usually pronounced “Postgres” (you simply drop the QL).
