Moving a MySQL Database to AWS
Databases are a common component of many applications that are moving to the cloud. The process of cloud transformation raises questions about how to host application databases in the cloud and how to migrate existing data. In this lab, you will get hands-on with the idea of moving application databases to the cloud using Amazon RDS.

Create an Amazon Aurora RDS Database
Create a MySQL-compatible Amazon Aurora database using RDS. Use
database-1as the DB cluster identifier.
You will need to use
db.t3.smallfor the instance class. At the moment, you do not need an Aurora replica for Multi-AZ deployment. You will also need to enable public access so that the database instance has a reachable IP address for the purpose of data migration.
Migrate the Data from the Linux Application Server to the RDS Database
The lab server has the application's "old" MySQL database. Log in to this server, and dump the data from the database called
plantshop. Then, migrate this data to the new RDS database.
Also, create a service account in the RDS database called
plantshopwith the password
pl4nt5!. Provide this user with database privileges to select from the
You will need to provide temporary security group access to the RDS database to migrate the data. Once the migration is complete, delete the temporary access.
