AWS Service Ready Helps Customers Find Tools and Products Integrated with Amazon RDS

AWS Service Ready-olThe Amazon RDS Ready Program, part of the AWS Service Ready Program, makes it easy for Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers to find products and solutions that integrate with Amazon RDS database engines including Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle Database, and SQL Server.

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) allows you to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity, while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups.

Amazon RDS Ready Partners provide tooling for Amazon RDS adoption in areas like migration, performance, governance, and monitoring. They also support the use of the Amazon RDS platform as a back-end for applications deployed within a customer’s AWS account.

Here are a few examples of Amazon RDS Ready Partners helping customers:

  • New Relic helps customers like Infomedia get real-time insight from their infrastructure to optimize their use of cloud resources and application performance, resulting in reduction of cloud infrastructure costs by 40 percent.
  • Heimdall Database Proxy provides insights to improve query speeds, allowing customers like Questis to improve website response times up to 46 percent.
  • Immuta’s platform allows customers to enforce data access based on role, permissions, and policies, helping customers like RADAR dynamically enforce access restrictions in real time.

Introducing Amazon RDS Ready Partners

The AWS Service Ready Program validates products from AWS Partner Network (APN) Technology Partners that integrate with Amazon RDS.

In order to receive an Amazon RDS Ready designation, APN Partners must demonstrate their products follow AWS architecture, security, and reliability best practices to integrate with Amazon RDS. Our AWS Partner Solutions Architects review the general integration requirements, database and network configuration, database connection management, high availability and performance testing results for each partner’s product.

With the Amazon RDS Ready program, AWS customers benefit by spending less time evaluating new tools and applications that integrate with Amazon RDS, and have increased confidence when making purchasing decisions from Amazon RDS Ready Partners.
