AWS Database Migration Service now supports enhanced premigration assessments

Posted on: Jul 29, 2020

Starting today, you can use enhanced premigration assessments to identify potential database migration problems before initiating your migration. Once the migration task is set up, a premigration assessment scans both the source and target database schemas and the migration task settings to identify a list of potential issues ranging from a data type mismatch to possible performance issues. You can select one or more premigration assessments to run on your database migration tasks and review the results on the console or in an AWS S3 bucket.  

AWS Database Migration Service helps you migrate databases to AWS quickly and securely. The source database remains fully operational during the migration, minimizing downtime to applications that rely on the database. The AWS Database Migration Service can migrate your data to and from the most widely used commercial and open-source databases.
