General purpose instances

General purpose instances are the most basic type of instances. They provide a balance of compute, memory, and networking resources, and can be used for a variety of workloads. Since you are requiring higher read and write capacity, storage optimized instances should be selected instead.

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a mechanism that uses additional HTTP headers to tell browsers to give a web application running at one origin, access to selected resources from a different origin. A web application executes a cross-origin HTTP request when it requests a resource that has a different origin (domain, protocol, or port) from its own.

Expectations php

Expectations are a backwards compatible enhancement to the older assert() function. Expectation allows for zero-cost assertions in production code, and provides the ability to throw custom exceptions when the assertion fails. assert() is now a language construct, where the first parameter is an expression as compared to being a string or Boolean to be tested.

IntlChar

IntlChar provides access to a number of utility methods that can be used to access information about Unicode characters.

The methods and constants adhere closely to the names and behavior used by the underlying ICU library.
