Databases in Amazon Lightsail

You can create a MySQL or PostgreSQL managed database in Amazon Lightsail with a few steps. Lightsail makes database administration more efficient by managing your common maintenance and security tasks. Using the Lightsail console, you can:

  • Back up your database to a snapshot.

  • Create a new larger database from a snapshot.

  • Troubleshoot common issues with browser-based logs and metrics.

  • Recover data by using point-in-time backup and restore operations.

You can build your application on a Lightsail instance and connect it to a Lightsail managed database. You can also create a standalone database, and connect analytics or querying tools for your company. Choose from standard or high availability database plans that include your pre-configured database, SSD-based storage, and data transfer allocation for a fixed, monthly price. You can also manage Lightsail databases using the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), API, or SDK.
