You can now start creating RDS database instances on AWS Outposts! AWS has announced support for MySQL and PostgreSQL, around six months after its hybrid cloud platform AWS Outposts hit general release.
AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that is said to extend AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a consistent hybrid experience.
AWS compute, storage, database, and other services run locally on Outposts, and customers can access the full range of AWS services available in the Region to build, manage, and scale your on-premises applications using familiar AWS services and tools.
AWS said that customers can now “make use of important RDS features including scheduled backups to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), built-in encryption at rest and in transit, and more.”
AWS Outposts now offers support for two kinds of RDS databases: MySQL 8.0.17 and PostgreSQL 12.2.
AWS said it has plans to add more database engines and versions in the future.
