It provides cost-efficient, resizable capacity for an industry-standard relational database and manages common database administration tasks.You can get started with Amazon RDS by following the tasks shown in the following diagram.You©ll primarily use the AWS Management Console, a point-and-click web-based interface. This guide walks you through creating and connecting to your first Amazon RDS DB Instance. API Version 2012-07-31 1 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Sign Up for Amazon RDS To use Amazon RDS, you need an AWS account. If you don©t already have one, you©ll be prompted to create one when you sign up for Amazon RDS. To sign up for Amazon RDS 1. Go to http://aws.amazon.com/rds and click Sign Up for Amazon RDS. 2. Follow the on-screen instructions. Once you©ve signed up for Amazon RDS, you©ll be able to begin the process of creating your own DB Instance. Jump to Authorize Access: Create a DB Security Group (p. 3). API Version 2012-07-31 2 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Authorize Access: Create a DB Security Group Your first task is to set up a DB Security Group that controls what IP addresses or EC2 instances have access to your DB Instance.You will use this security group when you create a DB Instance. Once created, you can reuse this security group or create new security groups for specific DB Instances. Creating a DB Security Group To create a DB Security group for this example, you enter CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) notation to specify either a single IP address or a range of IP addresses that you will allow to connect to your DB Instance. Since these IP addresses will be allowed access, it is important that you grant access to the correct IP addresses. To create a new DB Security Group 1. In the left column of the AWS Management Console, click DB Security Groups.The My DB Security Groups page appears. 2. Click the Create DB Security Group button. The Create DB Security Group dialog box appears. 3. In the Create DB Security Group dialog box, type the name of the security group and a brief description. If you are using a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), enter the ID of the VPC instance. If you API Version 2012-07-31 3 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Creating a DB Security Group are not using a VPC, you can leave this field blank. Click Yes, Create to close the dialog box and show the My DB Security Groups page of the AWS Management Console. 4. On the My DB Security Groups page, the DB Security Group you created is selected. On the Description tab at the bottom of the window, select CIDR/IP from the Connection Type drop-down list. Type your CIDR range into the CIDR text box, and click the Add button. Note The IP address you enter should be the public-facing address or range of addresses of the computers that will be accessing the DB Instance. If you are behind a firewall, the IP addresses could be a limited set of addresses that the firewall exposes. To help you determine your current IP address, the CIDR range for your current IP address appears on the page just below the CIDR text box. Due to how firewalls work, this value may not be the publically visible IP address you need to provide in the CIDR textbox. See your network administrator for information on what IP addresses you should include in the security group. You will use the name of the DB Security Group in the next step when you launch your DB Instance. Jump to Launch a DB Instance (p. 5). API Version 2012-07-31 4 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Creating a DB Security Group Launch a DB Instance Now that you have signed up for Amazon RDS and created a DB Security Group, you©re ready to launch a DB Instance using the AWS Management Console. Important The DB Instance you©re about to launch will be live (and not running in a sandbox).You will incur the standard Amazon RDS usage fees for the instance until you terminate it. The total charges will be minimal if you complete the exercise described here in one sitting and terminate your DB Instance when you are finished. For more information about Amazon RDS usage rates, go to the Amazon RDS product page. The quickest way to create a new DB Instance is by using the AWS Console. Once you select the DB Engine you want to use, the process for creating the DB Instance is specific to the DB Engine. To launch a DB Instance Start the launch wizard: 1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon RDS console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/rds/. 2. In the left column of the AWS Console, select the region in which you want to create the DB Instance. This should be the same region as the region in which you created your DB Security Group in the previous step. 3. Click Launch DB Instance to start the Launch DB Instance Wizard. The wizard opens on the Engine Selection page. API Version 2012-07-31 5 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide 4. Click the Select button for the DB Engine you want to installed in the DB Instance you are launching. 5. To continue, select the link that corresponds to the DB Engine you chose: · Launching a MySQL DB Instance (p. 6) · Launching an Oracle DB Instance (p. 11) · Launching a Microsoft SQL Server DB Instance (p. 16) Launching a MySQL DB Instance To launch a MySQL DB Instance Once you have selected MySQL as your DB Engine, the wizard displays the DB Instance Details page for MySQL.The most important parameters you set here are for the DB Instance Class in the DB Instance Class drop-down list and the Allocated Storage textbox. The DB Instance class defines the CPU and memory capacity of your DB Instance, which can impact processing speed and responsiveness. The allocated storage value determines how much storage is allocated for this DB Instance. Note that these two values are used to calculate the cost of your DB Instance. API Version 2012-07-31 6 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Launching a MySQL DB Instance 1. On the DB Instance Details page, specify your DB Instance information as shown in the following table, then click Continue. ...Do this:For this parameter... Select the default, General-Public-License, to use the general license agreement for MySQL. License Model Select 5.5.20 to use the default version of MySQL. Note that RDS supports additional versions of MySQL. DB Engine Version Select db.m1.small to select a configuration that equates to 1.7 GB memory, 1 ECU (1 virtual core with 1 ECU), 64-bit platform, and moderate I/O capacity. To see the capacity for all the DB Instance class options, see Amazon Relational Database Service Features. DB Instance Class Select No to not request that your database be made available in multiple availability zones. For more information on multiple availability zones, see the RDS documentation. Multi-AZ Deployment Select Yes to enable your DB Instance to receive minor DB Engine version upgrades automatically when they become available. Auto Minor Version Upgrade Type 5 to allocate 5 GB of storage for your database. In some cases, allocating a higher amount of storage for your DB Instance than the size of your database can improve I/O performance. For more information on storage allocation, see Amazon Relational Database Service Features. Allocated Storage API Version 2012-07-31 7 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Launching a MySQL DB Instance ...Do this:For this parameter... Type a name for the DB Instance that is unique for your account in the region you selected.You may chose to add some intelligence to the name such as including the region and DB Engine you selected, for example west2-mysql-instance1. DB Instance Identifier Type a name using alphanumeric characters that you will use as the master user name to log on to your DB Instance with all database privileges. Master User Name Type a password containing from 8 to 16 printable ASCII characters (excluding /,", and @) for your master user password. Master User Password 2. After you click the Continue button, the Additional Configuration page opens. This step provides additional information RDS needs to launch the DB Instance for MySQL. ...Do this:For this parameter... Type a name for your database of up to 8 alpha-numeric characters. If you do not provide a name, Amazon RDS will not create a database on the DB Instance you are creating. Database Name Leave the default value of 3306 unless you have a specific port you want to access the database through. MySQL installations default to port 3306. Database Port Leave the default value of Not in VPC unless you are creating this DB Instance in a Virtual Private Cloud with a DB Subnet Group. Choose a VPC API Version 2012-07-31 8 Amazon Relational Database Service Getting Started Guide Launching a MySQL DB Instance ...Do this:For this parameter...

Option Group Leave the default value of default.mysql5.5 unless you created your own DB Parameter group. DB Parameter Group Select the security group you created in the Authorize Access step of this guide. DB Security Groups 3. After you click the Continue button, the Management Options page appears. This is where you can specify backup and maintenance options for your DB Instance. Note that setting the Backup Retention Period to zero disables automatic backups. 4. Note The Point-In-Time-Restore and Snapshot Restore features of Amazon RDS for MySQL require a crash recoverable storage engine and are supported for the InnoDB storage engine only. While MySQL supports multiple storage engines with varying capabilities, not all of them are optimized for crash recovery and data durability. For example, the MyISAM storage engine does not support reliable crash recovery and may result in lost or corrupt data when MySQL is restarted after a crash, preventing Point-In-Time-Restore or Snapshot restore from working as intended. If you would like to convert existing MyISAM tables to InnoDB tables, you can use the alter table command (e.g., alter table TABLE_NAME engine=innodb;). Note that MyISAM and InnoDB have different strengths and weaknesses, so you should fully evaluate the impact of making this switch on your applications before doing so. In addition, Federated Storage Engine is currently not supported by Amazon RDS for MySQL.
