AWS Database Migration Service features and reviews of 2020

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software helps users to migrate databased to AWS securely and with ease.

Overview

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software is a web service that enables users to migrate data from two endpoints on an AWS service. Users can use this software to move their databases to AWS with small downtime as the source databases remain operation during the migration process. This software helps users to move their data to and from accessible commercial and open-source databases. Plus, the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software supports homogeneous and heterogeneous migration.

Users can use this software to replicate their data continuously with high availability, and they can stream data to Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift to consolidate databases into a petabyte-scale data warehouse. AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software allows users to migrate their databases to Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Aurora, Amazon DocumentDB, and Amazon Redshift for free for the first six months. Besides, users do not need to install any applications and drivers to use this software.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software allows the target database to remain synchronized with the source after the database migration for as long as users choose. This process enables users to switch their database over at a time convenient to them. With this software, users pay for only the computing resources they use during the process of migration. Additionally, users can use the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software to migrate data between text-based, NoSQL, and SQL targets.

In case of interruption, this software restarts the process automatically and continues the migration process from where it stopped. Users can use extra connection attributes if they want to specify additional ones for an endpoint, and these attributes control file size and logging. Also, users can use the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software to migrate data in and from the cloud for development purposes.

Product Details

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software supports homogeneous database migration where both the source and target database engine are compatible. Users can migrate databases from Oracle to Amazon RDS for Oracle, MySQL to Amazon Aurora/ Amazon RDS for MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server to Amazon RDS, for SQL Server. To move databases between the source and target databases that have compatible data types or schema structure, users need to create a migration task with connections to both endpoints. Plus, the database source can run on-premises outside of AWS with ease.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software supports heterogeneous migrations with different source and target databases engines. For cases where the schema structure, database code, and data types are different in source and target databases, users need to transform the system and schema before they can start migrating data. Users can use the AWS schema conversion function of this software to convert the code and source schema to match the target database. Besides, the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software automatically transforms all data types from the source to the target database.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software does not require users to install any applications or drivers. In most cases, this software does not need changes to the source databases. This software manages all the migration process complexities once the migration starts, and it replicates data changes that happen in the source database in the process of migration automatically. Users can use this software to move their database to AWS with no downtime. Also, users can use the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software for continuous data replication.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software allows users to migrate data into and out of the cloud. Users can run development staging or test systems on AWS to utilize the rapid provisioning and scalability of the cloud. Testers and developers can, in turn, use copies of real production data to copy updates to the on-premises production system. With an on-premise development system, users can migrate a current copy of the AWS Cloud production database to the on-premises systems. Plus, users can carry out this process once or continuously, and it avoids disrupting the existing DevOps process while making sure there is an up-to-date representation of their production system.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software allows users to pay only for the computing resources they use during migration. Users can also pay for any extra log storage. This software enables users to set a migration task up rapidly in the AWS Management Console, and users can use this software to carry out test runs before performing actual database migration. AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software is self-healing, and it monitors the source and target databases continuously.  Also, this software monitors the replication instance and network connectivity, and it allows users t have high-availability for database migration.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software enables users to consolidate different source databased into a single target database. Users can carry out this consolidation for both homogeneous and heterogeneous migration processes, and they can use it with the various supported database engines. Users can spread the source databases across different locations, and they can locate the source databases on their premises outside of AWS. Besides, the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software automatically restarts and continues the migration process from where it stopped in cases of interruption.

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software uses endpoints to access the source or target data store of users. Before users can start migrating their database, they have to carry out an unbeaten test run. This software allows users to use other connection attributes to customize the behavior of an endpoint. Additionally, users can use the AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software to create replication tasks with ease.

Recap

AWS Database Migration Service ETL tools software allows users to move their different databases to AWS with no downtime, and users can migrate their data to and from open-source and commercial databases with ease. This software enables users to replicate their data with high-availability continually.
