(Serverless) Amazon Aurora MySQL 1 end of life on February 28, 2023


We received this email about Amazon Aurora MySQL 1 EoL, but the instructions for upgrading only seem to apply to the non-serverless variety. We have a serverless cluster (Aurora version 1.22.3).

I am wonder if this was sent in error, or do we have to create a new cluster or something?

Instruction for Aurora MySQL Serverless v1 has been added to our public document( EOL schedule is same as Provisioned Aurora MySQL Cluster.

For Aurora Serverless v1 DB clusters, you can complete upgrades from Aurora MySQL version 1 to Aurora MySQL version 2 by taking a snapshot of an Aurora MySQL version 1 cluster and restoring the snapshot to an Aurora MySQL version 2 cluster. For more details about this method, see Restoring an Aurora Serverless v1 DB cluster.

Mysql Aurora version 1 is MySQL 5.6 and it will get EOL at the end of March 2023. Serverless Aurora V1 supports Mysql version 1 (5.6), version 2 (5.7) and version 3 (8.0) so upgrade it to version 2 (5.7) or version 3 (8.0). It is not EOL for Serverless V1. It is just EOL for Mysql 5.6.
