Database Freedom: Migrating from Traditional Licensed Database Engines to AWS

Database Freedom is a program designed by AWS to assist customers migrating from traditional and proprietary database engines to cloud-native ones on AWS. AWS meets the needs of today’s new applications as well as modernisation agendas by offering a range of purpose-built databases. The range available allows customers to focus on innovation and customer experience by matching the optimal solution for the given use-case, whilst leveraging a cost-effective platform. As an AWS Premier Partner, Version 1 helps customers navigate the complexity of traditional databases, licensing costs, legacy overhaul and AWS migrations.
