You must be aware of the struggle while migrating applications and databases. It is very time-consuming and technically challenging. The data scientists who work on these migrations must be well-versed in both the source and target databases, as well as numerous programming languages. It is obvious that traditional migration programs thus usually overspend their allotted budget or are delayed.
Keeping the above factor in mind, in 2020 Amazon AWS launched Amazon Database Migration Accelerator. It is a single platform which integrates AWS Database Migration Service (DMS), AWS Schema Conversion Tool (SCT), and AWS database migration professionals to transition away from existing commercial databases for defined costs.
Migrations from Oracle or SQL Server to Amazon Aurora or Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) for PostgreSQL or MySQL are offered by Amazon DMA. Customers may pay Amazon DMA after the migration is complete, avoiding the chance of cost overruns.
