Relational Database Service#

Without the ability to store data long term, and perform work on it, computers and computer networks wouldn't be as useful as they are today. The database is an extremely powerful concept in this data driven world of ours.

AWS provides fully managed database services via it's Relational Database Service (RDS). RDS supports many database engines, all of which are relational. RDS does not provide managed NoSQL services.

Now that we're covered networkingh and compute, it's time for us to explore RDS, set up a database, and evolve our knowledge and understanding of AWS.

We'll eventually implement an RDS instance as our project requires it.
