Amazon's Relational Database Service (RDS) manages database admin tasks such as provisioning, backups, patching and monitoring for Oracle Database 11g Release 2. The AWS Oracle RDS comes in two versions: the first is a licence-included model, which means that customers do not need a separate Oracle licence; AWS will licence the Oracle database. That service runs 16 cents (10p) per hour.

The second option is a bring-your-own-licence model, in which customers can run Oracle's database on Amazon's RDS for 11 cents an hour.
