Organizations today are looking to free themselves from the constraints of on-premises commercial databases and leverage the power of cloud-native and open-source systems. Amazon Aurora is a MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database that is built for the cloud, with the speed, reliability, and availability of commercial databases at one-tenth the cost. In this session, we provide an overview of Aurora and its features. We talk about the latest advances in migration tooling and automation, and we explain how many of the common legacy features of Oracle and SQL Server map to modern cloud variants. We also hear from Dow Jones about its migration journey to the cloud.
