Amazon RDS allows you to use the AWS Management Console or a simple set of web services APIs to create, delete and modify relational database instances (DB Instances). You can also control access and security for your instance(s) and manage your database backups and snapshots. For a full list of the available Amazon RDS APIs, please see the Amazon RDS API Guide.

Amazon RDS currently supports multiple Oracle Database Editions. Support for a given edition varies by licensing model. See pricing for more information on the licensing models offered by Amazon RDS for Oracle:

  • Standard Edition One: License Included, Bring-Your-Own License
  • Standard Edition Two: License Included, Bring-Your-Own-License
  • Standard Edition: Bring-Your-Own-License
  • Enterprise Edition: Bring-Your-Own License

You will be charged at the end of each month for the Amazon RDS resources you actually consume. Once a DB Instance you have created is available for connection, you will be charged for each hour your DB Instance is running. Each DB Instance will run until termination, which occurs when you issue an API call to delete the DB Instance, or in the event of an instance failure. Partial DB Instance hours consumed are billed as full hours. In addition to DB Instance hours, you are also billed for your monthly storage, IO requests, and backups. If you scale your storage capacity within the billing period, your bill will be pro-rated accordingly.

For details, see the Amazon RDS for Oracle pricing page.
