Parallel load support in aws_s3 extension to import data in Aurora PostgreSQL


A customer wants to know whether there is any native mechanism to parallel upload data to Aurora from multiple csv files in S3. Based on the documentation 1 unlike, DMS there is no supported way of doing it. Secondly, is there a way one can modify aws_s3 extension i.e. wondering if have open-sourced it. DMS is another alternative, but wanted to rule out if there I am missing anything specific here.

As the document you mentioned, aws_s3 uses S3 API to download a file and then uses COPY statement to load data. It supports a single file, not multiple files as input. The customer need to implement to handle multiple files in their application.

aws_s3 is released by RDS/Aurora PostgreSQL team and not seemed to be open-sourced.
