Amazon Web Services announced Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) support for MySQL and PostgreSQL databases on AWS Outposts.
Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts extends Amazon RDS for MySQL and PostgreSQL databases to AWS Outposts environments. AWS Outposts uses the same hardware as in AWS public regions to bring AWS services, infrastructure, and operation models on-premises. With RDS on AWS Outposts customers can benefit from the managed database experience of RDS in close proximity to the business applications that need to be run on-premises. Customers use the same AWS Console, APIs, and CLI to provision and manage on-premises RDS on Outposts databases as they do today for Amazon RDS databases running in the AWS Cloud. RDS on Outposts automates tasks like database provisioning, operating system and database patching, backup, and long-term archival in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
