What is Amazon RDS?
The managed SQL database service known as Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). A variety of database engines are supported by Amazon RDS for data storage and organization. Additionally, it supports activities related to relational database maintenance, including data migration, backup, recovery, and patching.
The setup and upkeep of relational databases in the cloud are made easier by Amazon RDS. A relational instance of a cloud database is set up, run, managed, and scaled by a cloud administrator using Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS is a service used to manage relational databases; it is not a database in and of itself.
Databases are used to store vast amounts of data that apps can use to support a variety of tasks. Tables are used in relational databases to hold data. Because it arranges data points according to well-established relationships, it is called relational.
With the AWS Management Console, Amazon RDS API calls, or the AWS Command Line Interface, administrators can manage Amazon RDS. They install database instances using these APIs so that users can customize them.
Numerous instance kinds with various combinations of resources, including CPU, memory, storage choices, and networking power, are offered by Amazon. To accommodate the requirements of various workloads, each kind is available in a range of sizes.
RDS users can specify and set permissions for who can access resources using AWS Identity and Access Management.
