Support AWS Aurora RDS

AWS marketing:

Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database built for the cloud, that combines the performance and availability of traditional enterprise databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases.

Amazon Aurora is up to five times faster than standard MySQL databases and three times faster than standard PostgreSQL databases. It provides the security, availability, and reliability of commercial databases at 1/10th the cost. Amazon Aurora is fully managed by Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), which automates time-consuming administration tasks like hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups.

More and more customers are looking to run their software in the cloud. One of the major cost benefits of making this platform change is utilizing an RDS platform like Aurora (1/10 the cost!). Since OO is already compatible with PostgreSQL, I would hope the validation effort of Aurora would be minimal. It would also be a great option to add to the OO AWS quick start package as a more cost effective option.

This is a great idea, along with this, this should be one of the first databases that OO running on Containers should support as it already supports PostgreSQL.
