Getting started with Amazon RDS
The best way to understand Amazon RDS is to review the Getting Started Guide, part of our Technical Documentation. Once you are ready to create your own DB Instance and start building applications, you can use the AWS Management Console or Amazon RDS APIs to launch a DB Instance in minutes.
By default, customers are allowed to have up to a total of 40 Amazon RDS DB instances. Of those 40, up to 10 can be Oracle DB Instances under the "License Included" model. You can learn more about navigating Oracle licensing here.
If you wish to run more instances, please complete this form and we will promptly respond to your request.
