Read this to get your SQL Server migration team on the same page
Microsoft SQL Server is a longstanding relational database that has enjoyed continued popularity since its initial release in 1989. As the database has evolved over the years, so have the ways in which it is hosted. Many enterprises that are longtime users of SQL Server are migrating to the cloud, and are choosing to rehost these databases and the applications they power on AWS. There are several ways to rehost SQL Server with AWS, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. SQL Server can be hosted as a managed database on Amazon RDS, self-managed on Amazon EC2, or customers coming from VMware may choose VMware Cloud on AWS.
Whichever option you choose to host your SQL Server database, your application’s uptime depends on the database’s performance and availability. An often overlooked consideration is how backup and recovery will affect performance, so it’s important to pick the right solution.
