Amazon RDS for SQL Server – Now Available in VPC

by Jeff Barr | on | in Amazon RDS, Amazon VPC | | Comments

As you can tell from some of my recent posts, we’re adding new features to the Virtual Private Cloud and to the Relational Database Service at a very rapid clip. Today’s release involves both of these services!

You can now use launch RDS database instances running Microsoft SQL Server inside of a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). You can now get all of the benefits of the Relational Database Service including backup management, automatic failure detection and recovery, software patching (both OS and database), and easy scaling, all within a private, isolated section of the AWS Cloud.
