Relational Database Service (RDS)

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a managed SQL database service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon RDS supports an array of database engines to store and organize data and helps with database management tasks, such as migration, backup, recovery, and patching.
