Amazon Relational Database Service (AWS RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups. The RDS database server used by the Deep Security Manager is deployed across two (2) Availability Zones, providing high availability at the database layer.

AWS RDS is also available on several database instance types - optimized for memory, performance or I/O - and provides six (6) familiar database engines to choose from, including Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server.

Learn how to deploy AWS RDS and how Deep Security Manager establish connection to AWS RDS in Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (AWS PVC).
