How Many Databases Can Run on an RDS DB Instance?
The maximum number of databases that can run on an RDS DB instance depends on the DB engine settings.
If there are enough CPU, memory, and storage resources, there are no limitations to the number of databases running on a DB instance. However, the number of tables in the databases affects the backup speed. If the number of tables exceeds 500,000, the backup will fail.
