Today, AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) announces the general availability of Fleet Advisor target recommendations, which gathers performance metrics and usage patterns of self-managed databases to recommend potential database engine and instance options for migration to AWS. Target recommendations can help to quickly identify the best migration option, based on estimated costs and limitations for each migration path.

AWS DMS Fleet Advisor provides recommendations for migrating self-managed Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL databases to AWS. In addition to providing recommended AWS database instance specifications for migration, this new capability also identifies database features in use where Amazon Relational Database Services (Amazon RDS) limitations may exist and provides prescriptive guidance on what is required for migration.

AWS DMS Fleet Advisor target recommendations are generally available, and you can use them in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Stockholm), Europe (Paris), Europe (London), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), South America (Sao Paulo) and Canada (Central).
