Get hands-on with the Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), a managed cloud database platform from Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS engineers will guide you through setting up, configuring and accessing relational databases (Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL). They'll discuss what makes RDS unique and how it helps database administrators stop worrying about infrastructure, allowing them to focus on high-value database tasks like tuning and schema design. No prior cloud experience necessary (beneficial to create an AWS account beforehand). Walk away with a deeper understanding of running relational databases in the cloud, and confidence in your ability to quickly provision databases for scalability, high availability and reliability.
