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 seven popular engines — Amazon Aurora with MySQL compatibility, Amazon Aurora with PostgreSQL compatibility, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and SQL Server — and deploy on-premises with Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts.
Build web and mobile applications
Support growing apps with high availability, throughput, and storage scalability. Take advantage of flexible pay-per-use pricing to suit various application usage patterns.
Move to managed databases
Innovate and build new apps with Amazon RDS instead of worrying about self-managing your databases, which can be time consuming, complex, and expensive.
Break free from legacy databases
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.
