Team Up with AWS Partners Validated by Database Engine Type Through the Amazon RDS Service Delivery Program

By Joanne Moore, Sr. Launch Product Manager at AWS
By Milan Thanawala, Sr. Database Partner Development Manager at AWS

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) provides cost-effective and re-sizable capacity while automating time-consuming management tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backup.

Amazon RDS is available on several database instance types optimized for memory, performance, or I/O. It provides seven familiar database engines to choose from—Aurora PostgreSQL, Aurora MySQL, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and SQL Server.

Amazon RDS Partners deliver solutions, including new implementations and migrations, that manage complex and time-consuming administrative tasks. This includes software installation and upgrades, storage management, replication for high availability and read throughput, and backups for disaster recovery.

Amazon RDS customers are looking for AWS Partners with specific database engine expertise to set up, operate, and scale relational databases in the cloud. To meet this need, we are excited to announce the relaunch of the Amazon RDS Service Delivery Program, part of the AWS Service Delivery Program.

With this relaunch, AWS Partners are now validated by specific database engine type to allow customers to identify an Amazon RDS Partner that best meets their database engine-specific migration and implementation needs.
