wikipedia:Amazon Relational Database Service (Oct 2009) [1] is a distributed relational database service by Amazon Web Services (AWS), also included in the AWS Free Tier option.

You can create different types of DBs using:

1) AWS Management Console
2) AWS CLI: aws ec2 run-instances
3) AWS Cloudformation: AWS::RDS::DBInstance
4) Terraform: aws_db_instance

Regarding possible cost while learning AWS RDS, just be aware that you will be able to stop AWS RDS instances from AWS Management Console or AWS CLI for 7 days period at a time, but after those 7 days, it will be automatically started by AWS.[3] [4]


Amazon RDS was first released on 22 October 2009, supporting MySQL databases.[5][6][7] This was followed by support for Oracle Database in June 2011,[8][9] Microsoft SQL Server in May 2012,[10] PostgreSQL in November 2013,[11] and MariaDB (a fork of MySQL) in October 2015,[12] and an additional 80 features during 2017.[13]

In November 2014 AWS announced Amazon Aurora, a MySQL-compatible database offering enhanced high availability and performance,[14] and in October 2017 a PostgreSQL-compatible database offering[15][13] was launched.[16]

In March 2019 AWS announced support of PostgreSQL 11 in RDS,[17] five months after official release.
