Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Jeff Hopper, and welcome to my course, Creating, Connecting, and Monitoring Databases with Amazon RDS. I'm a solution developer with 20 years' experience helping companies solve their technology challenges. Data persistence is at the core of every line of business application, but building and managing database instances along with the supporting hardware can take a quite a bit of time. That is where Amazon's hosted Relational Database Service, RDS, can help to free up that time so that it can be refocused to creating business solutions instead of managing hardware and database installations. In this course, we are going to look at creating and connecting to the five different third-party database engines provided by RDS. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the common configurations shared among each of these engines along with any specific configurations of each engine. We'll also take a look at several of the supporting features of RDS including read replicas, database backups, and database monitoring. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create, connect to, and monitor an RDS database instance of your choice among the five third-party engines RDS provides. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with one of these supported database engines and already have an AWS account where you can practice creating a database instance. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Amazon RDS with the Creating, Connecting, and Monitoring Databases with Amazon RDS course, at Pluralsight.
