Review of AWS Aurora Serverless v1

Anyone evaluating AWS Aurora Serverless v2 beta? We’ve been using v1 the last few months and had the following concerns.

1. Does not support RDS proxy leading to a high number of connections from lambda and other services 2. Lack of redundancy/failover 3. Only Supports MySQL version 5.6, which is very old 4. Event_scheduler is not supported 5. Number of connections utilize more ACU 6. Occasional timeouts during scaling 7. Instance warmup takes time

UPDATE: AWS will be releasing v2 in 2022 that will hopefully address some of these issues.
