Getting Started

This section shows you how to create and connect to a DB instance using Amazon RDS. You can create, or launch, a DB instance that uses MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Server.


You must complete the tasks in the Setting Up section before you can create or connect to a DB instance.

Creating a DB instance and connecting to a database on a DB instance is slightly different for each of the DB engines; select the DB engine below that you want to use for detailed information on creating and connecting to the DB instance.

Once you have created and connected to your DB instance, instructions are provided to help you delete the DB instance.
