You can now restore MySQL 5.7 backups stored in Amazon S3 to Amazon Aurora with MySQL compatibility and Amazon RDS for MySQL.  

If you are migrating a MySQL 5.5, 5.6, or 5.7 database to Aurora with MySQL compatibility or RDS for MySQL, you can copy database backups to an Amazon S3 bucket and restore them for a faster migration. Both full and incremental backups of your database can be restored. Restoring backups can be considerably quicker than moving data using the mysqldump utility, which replays SQL statements to recreate the database.

Restore your database backups with just a few clicks on the AWS management console or alternatively, use the latest AWS SDK or CLI. Refer Aurora with MySQL compatibility and RDS for MySQL documentation to learn more about migrations using database backups.
