Relational Database Service (RDS) by AWS
Leave the complexity of database management to us. We’ll configure, update, and provide backups for stress-free database hosting so you can focus on application development.
What is Amazon RDS?
Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is a web service that automates common database administration tasks in the AWS Cloud. Its capabilities range from resizeable capacity, managed backups, software patching, automatic failure detection, recovery and more.
Greater agility isn’t a buzzword, it’s indispensable.
Why do you need RDS?
Simple pricing, scalable capacity, and superior support.
RDS allows you to use the database products you are already familiar with, such as MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server so you can perform at the top of your game with the products you already know and love.
Easy to Administer
Lower your administrative burden. Running your applications from your preferred database means the code, applications, and tooling you use with your existing database can be leveraged on RDS. Pre-configured parameters and settings will give you granular control of your database in real-time.
Available and Durable
Fault tolerance across multiple data centers enables automatic failover, synchronous replication, and high availability with minimal button clicks. Read replicas, automated backups, and backups of your DB instances in Amazon S3.
Choose between two types of storage: General Purpose (SSD) Storage and Provisioned IOPS (SSD) Storage. Provisioned IOPS for a production application that requires fast, consistent performance with low latency. General Purpose Storage is 3 IOPS for each GiB, with a minimum of 100 IOPS (your cost effective and baseline solution).
Unlike traditional database methods, RDS does not consolidate CPU, memory, storage, and IOPS. Instead, you get separate instances so you can scale them independently, allowing you to allocate as much as you want towards IOPS or storage without compromising your operational overhead.
Control who accesses your RDS databases by leveraging AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to define users and permissions. You can also help protect your databases by putting them in a virtual private cloud (VPC) to control inbound and outbound traffic. Data encryption, regulatory compliance, and assurance programs for any industry.
