We launched the Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) almost six years ago, in October of 2009. The initial launch gave you the power to launch a MySQL database instance from the command line. From that starting point we have added a multitude of features, along with support for the SQL Server, Oracle Database, PostgreSQL, and Amazon Aurora databases. We have made RDS available in every AWS region, and on a very wide range of database instance types. You can now run RDS in a geographic location that is well-suited to the needs of your user base, on hardware that is equally well-suited to the needs of your application.
