Supported features in Amazon RDS by Amazon Web Services Region and DB engine

Support for Amazon RDS features and options varies across Amazon Web Services Regions and specific versions of each DB engine. To identify RDS DB engine version support and availability in a given Amazon Web Services Region, you can use the following sections.

Amazon RDS features are different from engine-native features and options. For more information on engine-native features and options, see Engine-native features.

Table conventions

The tables in the feature sections use these patterns to specify version numbers and level of support:

  • Version x.y – The specific version alone is supported.

  • Version x.y and higher – The version and all higher minor versions are supported. For example, "version 10.11 and higher" means that versions 10.11, 10.11.1, and 10.12 are supported.

  • - – The feature isn't currently available for that particular RDS feature for the given RDS DB engine, or in that specific Amazon Web Services Region.
