Creating and Restoring RDS Snapshot in a specific time

What is Amazon RDS?

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups. It frees you to focus on your applications so you can give them the fast performance, high availability, security, and compatibility they need.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Databases.
  4. Choose Create database.
  5. In Choose a database creation method, select Standard Create.
  6. In Engine options, choose the engine type: MariaDB, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, or PostgreSQL. Microsoft SQL Server is shown here.
  7. For Edition, if you’re using Oracle or SQL Server choose the DB engine edition that you want to use.
  8. MySQL has only one option for the edition, and MariaDB and PostgreSQL have none.
  9. For Version, choose the engine version.
  10. In Templates, choose the template that matches your use case. If you choose Production, the following are preselected in a later step:
  • Multi-AZ failover option
  • Provisioned IOPS storage option
  • Enable deletion protection option
  1. We recommend these features for any production environment.
