I've been using AWS Relational Database Services in several projects in different environments and from the AWS products, maybe this one together to EC2 are my favourite. They deliver what they promise. Reliable, fast, easy and with a fair price (in comparison to commercial products which have obscure license agreements).

It's good. You just have to know its limitations and design around them. For example, there is no operating system level access to files for things like backup/restore. You can use workarounds with S3 storage. You can't use read replicas with MS SQL databases.

The AWS Admin Console gives you exceptional control over managing your RDS Instance, and you can connect via SSH as well if needed or via a Database management Console.

About Amazon RDS

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) allows users to set up, operate, and scale a database in the cloud. The vendor states it provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, setup, patching, and backups. This frees users to focus on applications so they can give them the fast performance, high availability, security, and compatibility they need.

Amazon RDS is available on several database instance types - optimized for memory, performance or I/O - and provides you with six familiar database engines to choose from including Amazon Aurora, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Oracle Database, and SQL Server.
