Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service)


Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is a web service that makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It is designed for developers or businesses who require the full features and capabilities of a relational database, or who wish to migrate existing applications and tools that utilize a relational database.

The Amazon RDS action provides cost-efficient and re-sizable capacity while automating time-consuming database administration tasks, freeing you up to focus on your applications and business.

IMPORTANT: AutoMate's RDS activities are performed using Amazon's Relational Database Service engine, therefore, administering Amazon RDS through AutoMate requires a valid Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
