In this training session we will be combining an extended deep dive on Amazon Relational Database Service along with a hands on lab using Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL and AWS DM. As part of the deep dive we will cover the unique features of Amazon RDS for improved availability and durability. In addition, you will get hands on experience creating an Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL for high availability and read scaling as well as point in time recovery for your instance. We will also walk through failover, promotion and the best practices around parameter settings based on application workload.

In afternoon, we will go over AWS Database Migration Service for making migrations to PostgreSQL easy from commercial databases. We will also cover minimum downtime during migration as well as when upgrading databases from older versions like PostgreSQL 9.4 to the latest version of PostgreSQL.

Requirements: Please bring your laptop to get hands-on experience with Amazon RDS. Preferably pre-create an account at‎
