Amazon RDS for Microsoft SQL Server

Amazon RDS frees you up to focus on application development by managing time-consuming database administration tasks including provisioning, backups, software patching, monitoring, and hardware scaling.

You can run Amazon RDS for SQL Server under two different licensing models – “License Included” and “License Mobility through Software Assurance (or Bring Your Own License – BYOL)”.
"License Included" pricing starts at $0.035 per hour and is inclusive of software, underlying hardware resources, and Amazon RDS management capabilities.

Microsoft’s License Mobility program allows customers who already own SQL Server licenses to run SQL Server deployments on Amazon RDS.

Amazon RDS for SQL Server DB Instances can be provisioned with either standard storage or Provisioned IOPS storage. Amazon RDS Provisioned IOPS is a storage option designed to deliver fast, predictable, and consistent I/O performance, and is optimized for I/O-intensive, transactional (OLTP) database workloads.
