Alternative to RDS Service

If you would prefer not to use the AWS RDS Service, you can easily replace it with two RHEL Instances with an Oracle 12 EE or MS SQL Server 2017 EE database setup on each.

The Oracle or MS SQL RHEL instances should follow the same rules:

  1. One instance in each availability zone.
  2. Each instance in a separate private subnet.
  3. Both instances in one Database Security Group as defined in Security Groups and Network Access Lists.
