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).
Trianz has a close partnership with AWS, offering a range of industry-leading consulting services. We have helped to orchestrate database migrations for hundreds of our clients with a 100% customer success rate. By leveraging the power of cloud data storage, our clients have benefitted from improved performance, reliability and capacity for business growth.
Our experts understand how complex a database migration can be, which is why we work closely with you to identify and implement the optimal solution for your business model. Our consultants are ready to start your migration—all you need to do is get in touch!

What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore
A Winning Base for Successful Digital Transformations When it comes to developing a successful digital strategy, it is not just corporations planning to maximize the benefits of data assets and technology-focused initiatives. The Government of Western Australia recently unveiled four key priorities for digital reform in its new Digital Strategy for 2021-2025.Explore
Engage Your Workforce with a Modern Employee Intranet Solution The employee intranet has changed significantly since it was first introduced in the early 1990s. What started as HTML-based static portals have now evolved into intuitive communication tools complete with search engines, user profiles, blogs, event planners, and more. Today, many organizations are taking a second look at employee intranets to bridge gaps between teams, build company culture, centralize information, increase productivity, and improve workflow.Explore
Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new. Facebook PrestoDB popularized the idea of distributed structured query language (SQL) query engines in 2013. Over the years, AWS, Google, Microsoft, and many others in the industry have accelerated the adoption of a distributed query engine model within their products. For example, AWS developed Amazon Athena on top of the Presto code base, while Google’s BigQuery is based on Cloud SQL.Explore
What is Unstructured Data? Almost 80% of the data that enterprises and organizations collect is unstructured - data without a set record format or structure. Unstructured data includes data such as emails, web pages, PDFs, documents, customer feedback, in-app reviews, social media, video files, audio files, and images.Explore
