AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) has added Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Azure SQL Database as migration sources. Amazon S3 is object storage with a simple web interface to store and retrieve any amount of data. Now that S3 is supported as both a source and a target, you can easily move your data between S3 buckets and any database supported by DMS.

Building on its existing support for SQL Server sources and targets, DMS now supports full load from Azure SQL Database instances. Information can be migrated from an Azure SQL Database instance to a SQL Server database running on Amazon EC2 or Amazon RDS, or to an open source database or any other target supported by DMS. This opens up both cloud vendor mobility and database mobility.
