We help you set up, operate and scale a relational database in the cloud
For decades, relational databases have been a foundation for most systems that need to store structured data. Some of their advantages include their ability to efficiently manage large volumes of data, their flexibility in allowing users to query and manipulate the data, and their support for data integrity and consistency through the use of constraints and rules.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a collection of cloud-based managed services for setting up, operating, and scaling relational databases in the cloud. RDS provides a variety of configuration options to optimise database performance, including instance types, storage types, and database parameter settings. It also supports regional (Multi-AZ) and global deployments for high availability, providing automatic failover in the event of a database outage.
Our GFT cloud experts will help you with database monitoring, security, and performance using Amazon RDS database engines.
