Managing a DB Instance

DB instances are the smallest management units used by RDS. Each is an isolated database environment on the cloud. A DB instance can contain multiple user-created databases. You can use the same tool or program to access these databases. You can use the RDS console or APIs to create DB instances and manage them easily.

RDS supports the following DB engines:

  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • Microsoft SQL Server
