Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is a flexible cloud-based solution from Amazon Web Services that assists with setting up, scaling, and operating a relational database. Developers can leverage Amazon RDS to automate administrative tasks including database setup, hardware provisioning, backups, and patching. The service offers users the choice between six popular database engines, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, and Amazon Aurora. You can utilize Amazon’s Database Migration Service to replicate or migrate existing databases to Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS consulting services assist clients with configuring and deploying this program. In addition to implementation, some of the providers in this category assist with additional training or support related to Amazon RDS, as well as other IT consulting services or implementation services such as Amazon EMR consulting.
