Load Balancing AWS RDS MySQL read traffic using Route53 Weighted Routing
Randika Rathugamage

Amadou Crookes This setup is currently in-use on a production website. Website does have about 10K concurrent users approximately. There are about 1000–1500 concurrent db connections to read replicas, and so far this has worked well for us. I haven’t however had any chances to benchmark this with a real load-balancer.
