Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) on AWS Outposts allows you to deploy fully managed database instances in your on-premises environments. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience. You can deploy Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts to set up, operate, and scale Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL relational databases on premises, just as you would in the cloud. Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity for on-premises databases, while automating time-consuming administration tasks including infrastructure provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups, freeing you to focus on your applications.
When you deploy Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts, you can run RDS on premises for low latency workloads that need to be run in close proximity to your on-premises data and applications. Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts also enables automatic backup to your Outpost or to an AWS Region. You can manage RDS databases both in the cloud and on premises using the same AWS Management Console, APIs, and CLI. Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts supports Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL database engines, with support for additional database engines coming soon.
