AWS Database Migration service helps to migrate the databases to AWS quickly and securely. This brings the source database remains fully operational during the migration, minimizing applications downtime to deploy on the database.
Benefits of moving the database towards AWS:
Simple to use
Fast and easy to set-up
Supports widely used databases
With the introduction of cloud computing, enterprises now have a wealth of computing resources available to them. The cloud has become a most favored option for numerous enterprise IT workloads as well as data warehousing. With an on-prem data center, businesses are unable to benefit from cloud-native functionality, giving them a disadvantage in this competitive digital market.
You can realize several benefits by moving your database to the cloud - resource scaling and global replication, among others. Still, the process of migrating a database to a new platform can be daunting, dissuading enterprises from making the leap to the cloud.
We understand how beneficial a cloud database migration can be. That’s why we work to simplify your digital evolution using our expertise and extensive selection of ETL tools. Our experts can step in at any stage of your migration journey, offering support and guidance to realize your technology vision.
Databases can be diﬃcult and time-consuming to manage in production. AWS database solutions make it easy to migrate and deploy in the cloud with performance, scalability, and availability.
In a sea of cloud platforms, one of the most popular options is Amazon Web Services or AWS. Amazon was one of the first key players in the cloud industry with one of the most mature product portfolios on the market currently.
Most enterprises will benefit from a managed service, which offloads most of the database administration (DBA) workloads from your IT staff. But if you wish to retain fine control over your database hosting hardware, you can instead opt for an unmanaged service on AWS.
Here, you will find a range of data warehousing options, including:
Amazon Redshift – The most popular option for data warehousing on AWS is Amazon Redshift - a fully managed, cloud-based data warehousing platform. It’s an excellent choice for enterprises that have an existing relational database management system (RDBMS) such as MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle DB.
Unlike traditional data warehouses, Amazon Redshift offers industry-leading query execution thanks to its massively parallel processing. This involves the use of compute nodes, which operate through an abstraction layer to process query requests for users simultaneously. For enterprises that need high-performance processing, AWS RA3 managed storage nodes use SSD storage. These can failover to the Amazon S3 service when local storage for the database exceeds capacity to improve resilience and maintain high levels of uptime.
Amazon Aurora – After Redshift, the next most popular option for data warehousing on AWS is Amazon Aurora. This is another managed database service, built explicitly for use with MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible database engines.
Aurora is managed through the Amazon Relational Database Service, automating everyday DBA tasks like backups, resource scaling and database patching. Amazon Aurora offers support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Oracle DB and SQL Server. As far as security is concerned, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud can host Aurora databases in an isolated section of the AWS data center. This offers most of the security benefits with on-prem deployments, along with the benefits of the cloud. For a completely hands-off approach to cloud data warehousing, you can use Aurora Serverless, which fully manages all aspects of your database instance(s).

What are the Differences? Though often used interchangeably, data pipelines and ETL are two different methodologies for managing and structuring data. ETL tools are used for data extraction, transformation, and loading. Whereas data pipelines encompass the entire set of processes applied to data as it moves from one system to another. Sometimes data pipelines involve transformation, and sometimes they do not.Explore
One Unified Dashboard In the past, most enterprises would have used a legacy business management system to track business needs and understand how IT resources can fulfill these needs. The problem with these legacy systems is the manual data collection process, which introduces the risk of human error and is much slower than newer automated solutions.Explore

What is a Hybrid Data Center? A hybrid data center is a computing environment that combines on-premise and cloud-based infrastructure to enable the sharing of applications and data across physical data centers and multi-cloud environments. This allows organizations to balance the security provided by on-premise infrastructure and the agility found with a public cloud environment.Explore
