Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS)
Amazon RDS automatically patches and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery.

You benefit from the flexibility of being able to scale the compute resources or storage capacity associated with your relational database instance via a single API call. Amazon RDS supports both MySQL and Oracle Databases
