Works well with large databases, but could use more integration with other tools
Pros and Cons
  • "It's pretty useful when we need to migrate something big from a different type of database that AWS Data Migration Services supports."
  • "Database Migration Service could be more integrated. I think that it makes sense to add integration to these functions. For example, AWS Glue has a feature called Orchestrator to create data flows, and that's more straightforward."

What is our primary use case?

We don't use Data Migration Services regularly. We only use it when we need to migrate a relatively large database from on-premises to the cloud. From my point of view, it was the best option in this case.

How has it helped my organization?

It provided the ability to create more, less optimized data warehouses. And simplify support and working with data.

What is most valuable?

It's pretty useful when we need to migrate something big from a different type of database that AWS Data Migration Services supports. But it's more convenient to use Glue if we're dealing with a regular data load, like migrating a table.

What needs improvement?

Database Migration Service could be more integrated. I think that it makes sense to add integration to these functions. For example, AWS Glue has a feature called Orchestrator to create data flows, and that's more straightforward. But it's not easy to do the same things with Database Migration Service.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Database Migration Service is stable.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would say Database Migration Service is not expensive. 

What other advice do I have?

I rate AWS Database Migration Service six out of 10. However, if you are considering it, you should get a good idea of what you need. It's useful for some jobs, but you need to know how to use this better. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
