If your data is stored in existing relational databases, converting relational data structures to documents can be complex and involve constructing and managing custom extract, transform, and load (ETL) pipelines. Amazon Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) can manage the migration process efficiently and repeatably. With AWS DMS, you can perform minimal downtime migrations, and can replicate ongoing changes to keep sources and targets in sync. This post provides an overview on how you can migrate your relational databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and others to Amazon DocumentDB using AWS DMS.Read More
AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) announced support of Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) and self-managed Apache Kafka clusters as target. With AWS DMS you can replicate ongoing changes from any DMS supported sources such as Amazon Aurora (MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible), Oracle, and SQL Server to Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) and self-managed Apache Kafka clusters.
In this post, we use an e-commerce use case and set up the entire pipeline with the order data being persisted in an Aurora MySQL database. We use AWS DMS to load and replicate this data to Amazon MSK. We then use the data to generate a live graph on our dashboard application.
