Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) on VMware is a service that delivers AWS-managed relational databases in on-premises VMware environments. RDS on VMware automates time-consuming administration tasks such as database provisioning, operating system and database patching, backups, point-in-time restore, and database instance health monitoring. It makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale databases in your on-premises VMware vSphere environments, freeing you to focus on your applications.

RDS on VMware is generally available and will support Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL database engines in customer-owned data centers, including for workloads that need to remain on-premises to be in compliance with security, privacy, regulatory, or data sovereignty policies.

RDS on VMware is available in the US East Region. To learn more, visit this blog, the product page, or our documentation. To get started visit the Getting Started section of our documentation.
