High Availability (Multi-AZ)

Last updated: 2022-07-21 11:29:37

    Multi-AZ deployment protects your database against database instance failures and AZ outages. For more information, see Regions and AZs.

    In TencentDB for MySQL, multiple AZs are combined to enable multi-AZ deployment to ensure high availability and failover capability of database instances.


    • No matter whether the TencentDB for MySQL instances in a database cluster are running across multiple AZs or not, each instance has a replica for real-time hot backup to ensure high database availability.
    • With multi-AZ deployment, TencentDB for MySQL automatically presets and maintains a sync replica in a different AZ.
    • The source database instance is synchronously replicated to the replica across AZs to provide data redundancy, eliminate I/O freezes, and minimize latency during system backups.

    Supported Regions

    The multi-AZ deployment scheme of TencentDB for MySQL is currently available in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, and Virginia regions.
