Amazon RDS for SQL Server now supports Change Data Capture (CDC), allowing replication to various database targets. CDC is supported on all versions of Enterprise Edition, and on SQL Server 2016 SP1 and later for Standard Edition. To see how to enable and disable CDC, please visit our documentation. 

CDC can be used with AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) to replicate changes from a SQL Server source to any target supported by DMS. DMS will automatically detect that the source SQL Server instance is on RDS. All steps to use this feature are described in the DMS documentation.

To learn about how ongoing replication works, read this blog post.

Please visit the RDS for SQL Server and AWS DMS product pages for more information. See AWS DMS Pricing for regional availability.
