Amazon RDS deployment challenges
In our day-to-day projects with customers moving their database workloads to AWS, these are the types of challenges we’ve seen working with Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL.
Choosing the right size of the cloud instance
How do you know what size of EC2, RDS, and Aurora instances to use without overprovisioning?
With our in-house tools, we monitor your on-premises database performance over a period of time along with server information in order to then come up with recommendations for instance sizing across various services. These SQL scripts can also make recommendations for combining multiple databases on a single instance to reduce licensing costs for the service if it makes sense.
Selecting the right type of AWS cloud instance
How can you determine whether you should be looking at RDS versus Aurora vs deploying on EC2?
Our solution architects and DBAs can help you understand your requirements for high availability, performance needs, operational requirements, service monitoring, database capabilities, and other aspects of running databases on EC2, RDS, and Aurora. The benefits of managed RDS databases look attractive for reducing the time needed for our DBAs to conduct standard operations tasks.

Modernizing your database platform with Aurora
Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL compatible relational database built for the cloud, combining the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases.
Aurora is up to five times faster than standard MySQL databases and three times faster than standard PostgreSQL databases. It provides the security, availability, and reliability of commercial-grade databases at 1/10th the cost. Aurora is fully managed by Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), which automates time-consuming administration tasks like hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups.
Aurora features a distributed, fault-tolerant, self-healing storage system that auto-scales up to 64TB per database instance. Aurora delivers high performance and availability with up to 15 low-latency read replicas, point-in-time recovery, continuous backup to Amazon S3, and replication across three Availability Zones.
Here are the services that we offer for database freedom from SQL Server and Oracle databases by migrating them to either MySQL or PostgreSQL on Amazon Aurora.
The ABCloudZ database migration team can help you take advantage of Amazon Aurora MySQL or RDS MySQL. We can move your Oracle databases from the on-premises environment into the Amazon cloud quickly and efficiently.
