Database Migration with AWS
Amazon has finally taken the wraps off their AWS database migration service.
The cloud powerhouse debuted the migration service several months ago and since Jan. 1, Amazon indicated more than 1,000 databases have been successfully migrated to the service. There is plenty of competition in the database migration space with vendors however, but this may further secure Amazon's place at the top of the cloud.
“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. In the preview, one-third of the database migrations used the AWS Database Migration Service to not only move databases to the AWS Cloud, but also to switch database engines in the process.”
