Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) on Outposts is available in Preview, allowing you to deploy fully managed Amazon RDS database instances in your on-premises environments. AWS Outposts bring native AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility. You can deploy Amazon RDS on Outposts to set up, operate, and scale relational databases on premises, just as you would in the cloud. Amazon RDS provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity for databases in Outposts, while automating time-consuming administration tasks including infrastructure provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups, freeing you to focus on your applications.
When you deploy Amazon RDS on Outposts, you can run RDS on premises for low latency workloads that need to be run in close proximity to your on-premises data and applications. Amazon RDS on Outposts also enables automatic backup to an AWS Region. You can manage RDS databases both in the cloud and on-premises using the same AWS Management Console, APIs, and CLI. Amazon RDS on Outposts supports MySQL and PostgreSQL database engines, with support for additional database engines coming soon.
