AWS Migration Hub Orchestrator now supports Microsoft SQL Server transaction logs to help you minimize the cutover downtime during SQL Server database migration to AWS. With this capability, you can now select the transaction log as one of the backup types, create a migration workflow based on the predefined template, and run the workflow step by step to accelerate SQL Server migration and reduce downtime during cutover to AWS.

AWS Migration Hub Orchestrator helps you orchestrate and accelerate your application migrations with predefined workflow templates. You can use Migration Hub Orchestrator to rehost SQL Server to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) or replatform SQL Server to Relational Database Service (RDS) with automated native backup and restore. During migration workflow creation, you can choose the transaction log along with full and differential backup types to reduce downtime. You can also allow Migration Hub Orchestrator to upload your SQL Server backup files to Amazon S3 with or without AWS Direct Connect simply by one click. 

You can now use the new feature in all AWS Regions where AWS Migration Hub is available. This new feature is available to you at no additional cost. You only pay for the AWS resources that you provision for migration. For more information, visit the AWS Migration Hub Orchestrator user guide.
