Is it possible to have more than 5 read replicas in Amazon RDS?


The Amazon RDS FAQ seems to suggest that you can’t have more than 5 replicas. Is there any workaround?


No. Amazon only allows you to create up to 5 replicas, and need to be launched one by one.

If You need more than 5 you can create a Master-slave configuration using EC instances, then you can have as many replicas as you want.
