Migrate Your Database

In this section, you will perform a database migration using the source PostgreSQL database to a target Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL database with AWS Database Migration Service. Since this is a homogeneous database migrations (the source and target database engines are the same) - the schema structure, data types, and database code are compatible between the source and target databases, which means that this kind of migration doesn’t require any schema conversion.

You can check Migrating from PostgreSQL to PostgreSQL using AWS DMS for details and limitations.
