Importing data into Oracle on Amazon RDS

How you import data into an Amazon RDS DB instance depends on the following:

  • The amount of data you have

  • The number of database objects in your database

  • The variety of database objects in your database

For example, use the following mechanisms:

Before you use any of these migration techniques, we recommend that you back up your database. After you import the data, you can back up your Amazon RDS DB instances by creating snapshots. Later, you can restore the snapshots. For more information, see Backing up and restoring an Amazon RDS DB instance.

For many database engines, ongoing replication can continue until you are ready to switch over to the target database. You can migrate to Amazon RDS for Oracle from either the same database engine or a different database engine using Amazon DMS. If you migrate from a different database engine, you can use the Amazon Schema Conversion Tool to migrate schema objects that aren't migrated by Amazon DMS.
