Amazon Relational Database Service

Set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud with just a few clicks

How it works

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a collection of managed services that makes it simple to set up, operate, and scale databases in the cloud. Choose from eight popular engines: Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition, Amazon Aurora MySQL-Compatible Edition, RDS for PostgreSQL, RDS for MySQL, RDS for MariaDB, RDS for SQL Server, RDS for Oracle, and RDS for Db2. Deploy on premises with Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts or with elevated access to the underlying operating system and database environment using Amazon RDS Custom.

Use cases

Support growing apps with high availability, throughput, and storage scalability. Take advantage of flexible pay-per-use pricing to suit various application usage patterns.
Innovate and build new apps with Amazon RDS instead of worrying about self-managing your databases, which can be time consuming, complex, and expensive.
Free yourself from expensive, punitive, commercial databases by migrating to Amazon Aurora. When you migrate to Aurora, you get the scalability, performance, and availability of commercial databases at 1/10th the cost.
