Turn petabytes of relational database records into a cost-efficient audit trail using Amazon Athena, AWS DMS, Amazon RDS, and Amazon S3

In this post, we show how you can use AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) to migrate relational data from Amazon RDS into compressed archives on Amazon S3. We discuss partitioning strategies for the resulting archive objects and how to use S3 Object Lock to protect the archive objects from modification. Lastly, we demonstrate how to query the archive objects using SQL syntax through Athena with seconds latency, even on large datasets.

Use AWS DMS to migrate data from IBM Db2 DPF to an AWS target

AWS has introduced a new feature in AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) that simplifies the migration of data from IBM Db2 databases with the Database Partitioning Feature (DPF) databases to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), a highly scalable and durable object storage service. With this new capability, you can now migrate your data from IBM Db2 DPF databases to Amazon S3, paving the way for building robust data lakes in the cloud. This new feature streamlines the migration process, provides data integrity, and minimizes the risk of data loss or corruption, even when dealing with large volumes of data distributed across multiple partitions and databases of varying sizes. In this post, we delve into the intricacies of this new AWS DMS feature and demonstrate how to implement it. We explore best practices for orchestrating data flows and optimizing the migration process, achieving a smooth transition from on-premises IBM Db2 DPF databases to a cloud-based data lake on Amazon S3.

Troubleshoot and minimize AWS DMS replication latency with Amazon S3 as a target

Building data sources on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) can provide substantial benefits for analysis pipelines because it allows you to access multiple large data sources, optimize the curation of new ingestion pipelines, build artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models, providing customised experiences for customers and consumers alike. In this post, we […]

Cross-account Amazon RDS for Oracle migration using Amazon RDS snapshots and AWS DMS for minimal downtime

In scenarios such as consolidating or merging multiple departments with separate AWS accounts into a single AWS account, splitting a single account or divisions into multiple AWS accounts for better management, or duplicating an AWS account across Regions, you often need to migrate the database from one AWS account to another with minimal downtime and […]

Use the DBMS_CLOUD package in Amazon RDS Custom for Oracle for direct Amazon S3 integration

In this post, we demonstrate how to use the DBMS_CLOUD package to transfer files between S3 buckets and directories in an RDS Custom for Oracle database. We also show how you can access data from Amazon S3 directly using Oracle features such as external tables and hybrid partition tables. The features provided by DBMS_CLOUD could vary between different Oracle releases, so pay close attention to the steps in the post and make sure you reference DBMS_CLOUD in the Oracle Database 19c documentation. To avoid confusion, the option discussed in this post is for RDS Custom for Oracle, not for RDS for Oracle. RDS for Oracle offers S3 integration.

Deploy multi-Region Amazon RDS for SQL Server using cross-Region read replicas with a disaster recovery blueprint – Part 2

In our previous post, we deployed multi-Region disaster recovery blueprint using Amazon Route 53, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for SQL Server and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). In this post we walk you through the process of promoting RDS for SQL Server in the AWS secondary Region and performing a cross-Region failover […]

Deploy multi-Region Amazon RDS for SQL Server using cross-Region read replicas with a disaster recovery blueprint – Part 1

Disaster recovery and high availability planning play a critical role in ensuring the resilience and continuity of business operations. When considering disaster recovery strategies on AWS, there are two primary options: in-Region disaster recovery and cross-Region disaster recovery. The choice between in-Region and cross-Region disaster recovery depends on various factors, including the criticality of the […]

Build NFT metadata access control with Ethereum signatures and AWS Lambda authorizers

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have captured global attention as a mechanism for creating one-of-a-kind digital assets that can be instantly verified as authentic, easily exchanged between users, and made infinitely programmable such that NFTs can be used for a variety of use cases and industries. At its core, NFTs are a form of digital asset or […]
