Amazon Web Services said Tuesday that it has launched its Relational Database Service (RDS) for Oracle in a move that accommodates licensing within the offering and a bring your own license arrangement.

Amazon's 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 flavors:

  • A license included model means that customers don't need separate Oracle license. AWS will license the Oracle database. That service runs 16 cents per hour.
  • In a bring your own license model, customers can run Oracle's database on Amazon's RDS for 11 cents an hour.

Customers can reserve space for database instances or pay by the hour. Amazon has already supported MySQL deployments. Toss in Amazon's partnership with SAP and the company is rapidly becoming an option in many layers of the enterprise technology stack.

Here's the pricing for a standard edition licensing included:

As well as bring your own license:
