This was also the biggest news of re:Invent for me. Total game changer. No need to provision large R instance types to support the batch processing that happens a 3AM and sits idle most of the time. All environmental tiers can have 100% the same configuration.

I know of some projects burning millions a month in database costs because they like to replicate environments for testing branches. Switching to serverless Aurora would reduce that cost to probably low thousands.

Of course it all depends on how quickly it can scale up to meet the load and I reserve full judgement till I can try it out, but am very interested in this.
