In the first part of this tutorial we saw how easy it is to convert the database schema from a Microsoft SQL Server database into Amazon Aurora (PostgreSQL) using the AWS Schema Conversion Tool (AWS SCT). In the second part, we used the AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) to migrate the data from our source to target database with no downtime. Similarly, we observed how DMS automatically replicates new transactions on the source to target database.

You can follow the same steps to migrate SQL Server and Oracle workloads to other RDS engines including PostgreSQL and MySQL.
