Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces the launch of Amazon Database Migration Accelerator (DMA). Amazon DMA is a solution that helps customers migrate away from traditional commercial databases at fixed prices. At launch, we offer Amazon DMA to customers interested in migrating from Oracle or SQL Server to Amazon Aurora, or Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) for MySQL or PostgreSQL. Amazon DMA helps customers reduce the risk of budget overruns and delays that frequently affect traditional migrations by using automated tooling and AWS database migration experts. Over time, Amazon DMA will expand to include additional source and target databases, data warehouses, and analytics systems. Amazon DMA complements migration offerings from APN partners to offer customers the flexibility to choose the appropriate implementation solution.

Our experts will begin with an assessment of the customer’s application and database to determine feasibility and complexity. Subsequently, they will re-factor the application and the database in dedicated locations called migration centers. Finally, they will assemble the modified application and database, and perform functional tests before delivering them to the customer.
