This AWS webinar occurred just right-in-time; for about a week I was exploring the Schema Conversion Tool (SCT) and Database Migration Service (DMS) by deploying a sample Oracle database and migrating it to Aurora. Some of the questions that I had while going through my own self-discovery of the tools got answered in this webinar. Highly Recommended..!!
As organizations look to improve application performance and decrease costs, they are increasingly looking to migrate from commercial database engines into open source. Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. This webinar covers how to use Database Migration Service (DMS) to go about the migration, and how to use the schema conversion tool to convert schemas into Amazon Aurora. There is a quick demo of the entire process, and close with tips and best practices.
