AWS Server Migration Service now supports hourly replication intervals, which enable customers to further minimize the downtime when migrating on-premises servers to Amazon EC2

AWS Server Migration Service is an agentless service which makes it easier and faster for customers to migrate on-premises workloads to AWS from VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments. It allows customers to automate, schedule, and track incremental replications of live server volumes, making it easier to coordinate large-scale server migrations. Previously, customers could only choose between 12 and 24 hours as the interval for their incremental replications of live servers. With this announcement, customers are able to run their incremental replication jobs every hour.

This capability exists in all AWS Regions where AWS Server Migration Service is currently available. To learn more, visit AWS Server Migration Service (SMS).
