Amazon Web Services announced that the AWS Database Migration Service is now available to all customers.
The AWS Database Migration Service is a fully managed service that allows customers to migrate their production Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL databases from on-premises datacenters to AWS with virtually no downtime.
Amazon said customers can access the AWS Database Migration Service using the AWS Management Console.
The AWS Database Migration Service is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Regions.
The company will expand this service to additional regions in the coming months.
Amazon said its customers from various industries have used the AWS Database Migration Service preview to move more than 1,000 databases to the AWS Cloud since January 1, 2016. Many of these customers also used the AWS Schema Conversion Tool to switch database engines.
Hal Berenson, Vice President, Relational Database Services, AWS said, “Customers repeatedly told us they wanted help moving their on-premises databases to AWS, and also moving to more open database engine options, but the response to the AWS Database Migration Service has been even stronger than we expected.”
