DB System Components
A DB System consists of the following components:
An Amazon EC2 instance type (with resources defined by the associated shape. See Supported Shapes for more information.)
Oracle Linux Operating System
It is not possible to access the operating system. Only the MySQL instance is exposed through the DB System endpoint.
MySQL Server Enterprise Edition 8.0. For more information, see MySQL Server.
Virtual Network Interface Card (VNIC) which attaches the DB System to a subnet of the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). For connections to the DB System, a public endpoint is exposed as a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN). Specific IP addresses in CIDR format can be specified to limit access to the public endpoint.
Network-attached block storage. MySQL HeatWave on AWS uses Amazon EBS block storage. For more information, see Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) in the Amazon EC2 User Guide for Linux Instances.
DB System Storage
Storage size should be determined based on your data size and performance requirements.
For information about increasing the storage available to the DB System, see Increasing DB System Storage.
MySQL HeatWave on AWS supports the following MySQL and HeatWave node shapes.
Table 3-1 MySQL Shapes
|Shape Name||vCPUs||Memory (GiB)|
Table 3-2 HeatWave Node Shapes
|Shape Name||Memory (GiB)|
If you intend to use HeatWave AutoML functionality, the
HeatWave.256GB node shape is recommended
when creating a HeatWave Cluster. The
HeatWave.16GB node shape may not have
enough memory for training on large data sets. If you see
error messages about this (such as
ML003024), use the larger shape
