Today, AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) now makes homogeneous migrations simpler with built-in native database tooling. This launch allows you to seamlessly migrate your on-premises databases to equivalent target databases on AWS, providing easy and performant like-to-like migrations with minimal downtime and zero data loss. In addition, you can now centrally manage and monitor all your database migrations from AWS DMS.

With a few clicks in the DMS console, you can initiate a fully automated homogeneous migration, which includes all data types, secondary objects, and partitions. The new feature is serverless, so there is no need to manage replication instances. This is available for MySQL and PostgreSQL migrations to Amazon Relational Database Systems (RDS) and Amazon Aurora engines.

This new feature is generally available in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Singapore).
