New Database Migration Service with Schema Conversion Tool makes it easy for customers to migrate production databases to AWS with almost no downtime
MariaDB now available as a managed service on AWS with up to 6TB of storage, 30,000 IOPS, and support for high-availability
SEATTLE, WA – Oct. 7, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today at AWS re:Invent, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ:AMZN), announced new database tools and services that make it easier for enterprises to bring their production databases to AWS and break free from the cost and complexity of traditional commercial databases. The new, fully managed AWS Database Migration Service allows customers to migrate their production Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases to AWS with virtually no downtime. And, the AWS Schema Conversion Tool makes it easy for these customers to switch database engines. AWS also announced that its relational database service (Amazon RDS) will support its sixth database engine, the popular MySQL-compatible open-source database MariaDB. Finally, AWS shared that its new database engine Amazon Aurora, announced at the 2014 AWS re:Invent, has become the fastest-growing service in the history of AWS.

“With more than a hundred thousand active customers, and six database engines from which to choose, Amazon RDS has become the new normal for running relational databases in the cloud,” said Hal Berenson, Vice President, Relational Database Services, AWS. “The launch of Amazon Aurora has enabled customers to get the performance of commercial-grade databases at the price of open source engines. And, this has only amplified our customers’ pleas to help them migrate their on-premises databases to Amazon Aurora and other Amazon RDS engines. With the AWS Database Migration Service, and its associated Schema Conversion Tool, customers can choose either to move the same database engine from on-premises to AWS, or change from one of the proprietary engines they’re running on-premises to one of the several open source engines available in Amazon RDS.”

Amazon RDS now supports MariaDB
With Amazon RDS’s Provisioned IOPS (PIOPS) capability, MariaDB databases can scale to 6TB and 30,000 IOPS per database instance while maintaining fast and consistent performance. Customers can deploy production MariaDB applications using the Multi-Availability Zone (MAZ) deployment option. Amazon RDS will operate a synchronous stand-by replica with an automated fail-over mechanism. Amazon RDS for MariaDB also supports cross-region snapshot copy operations, allowing customers to keep a back-up copy in a different region for disaster recovery purposes. Customers can operate MariaDB databases in a logically isolated virtual network fully configured and controlled with strict firewall policies using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
Amazon Aurora now the fastest-growing service in AWS history
