Is there a service to move a database from MSSQL to MySQL (both hosted on AWS)

0

I have a database on my company's AWS server. We have hundreds but I am only concerned with two. Both are hosted on AWS. One is a MS SQL server and the other a MySQL.

I need to periodically move an entire database from MSSQL to MySQL. They are large databases so MySQL workbench and SSIS often fail due to size. ~1-2 million records. Less than 10GB data.

I have seen mentions of an Amazon service called DMS. Is there a service on Amazon that can do this? I do not need a permanent connection or sync between the two. Just 3-4 times a month to move the database.

I do not want to mention this to my Workgroup until I know it can be done. Is Data Migration Service the tool I need? Are there any other AWS solutions ?

Yes, AWS Database Migration Service should be able to help with this scenario. Please refer to the below documentation to understand the supported versions, limitations, etc. I would recommend you to test it to see if covers your entire use case.

Yes, You can migrate SQL Server database to MySQL using AWS Schema Conversation Tool (SCT) & AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) . As you mentioned you only need this migration for few times a month, you may choose the migration type as 'full load of existing data' while creating the migration. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/dms/latest/userguide/CHAP_Introduction.HighLevelView.html

Here is the step by step guide (it should have similar steps for RDS MySQL ) - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/dms/latest/sbs/chap-sqlserver2aurora.html
