AWS is announcing today that its AWS Database Migration Service has now reached over 20,000 migrations. And, the number of migrations seem to be accelerating significantly, as the company reports that only 10,000 migrations were complete in September 2016.
AWS Database Migration Service and Schema Conversion Tool (SCT) help our customers migrate their relational data from expensive, proprietary databases and data warehouses (either on premises on in the cloud, but with restrictive licensing terms either way) to more cost-effective cloud-based databases and data warehouses such as Amazon Aurora, Amazon Redshift, MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL, with minimal downtime along the way.
Amazon seems to suggest that it is gaining traction for commercial database migrations – from Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server to its own Aurora database.
