Product Reviews:

five-starsExcellent product and support!

CloudBasic RDS AlwaysOn/Geo-Replicate for SQL Server HA/DR is an excellent product backed by great support. Using the pre-configured AMI we were up and running in minutes. Used CloudBasic to migrate SQL Server databases into RDS, followed by setting up cross-region Multi-AR RDS SQL replications for Disaster Recovery and Multi-AZ High Availability. It works well with RDS Multi-AZ, creates SQL Server read-replicas which can be used for reporting, data-locality and offloading of primary RDS SQL Servers. With help form the responsive CloudBasic support team we were able to migrate our databases with no down time. Setting up DR and HA was straightforward.

I strongly recommend the product and the CloudBasic advisory support team.



five-starsI’m really happy I found your product

I’m really happy I found your product as there are not many options for this sort of thing with RDS and SQL Server.


Daniel O’Connor,

five-starsDoes what it says on the box, easy to use, amazing support.

I found this tool when I was looking for a way to transfer databases between our development systems and our production systems. These comprised of a mix of in house physical SQL, EC2 SQL and and RDS. Cloudbasic Geo-replicate solved this problem.

The product improvements I asked for were implemented within days allowing me to extend our use of this product into our devops continuous delivery model.

five-starsAffordable SQL Server High Availability Solution

As a consultant I look for affordable and easy to maintain solutions for my customers. This SQL Server HA solution features a simple web interface. I did not have to worry about configuring server clusters, log shipping etc. I was able to setup a DB instance replication to a cross-region AlwaysOn RDS in minutes. I was pleasantly surprised that MSSQL Web Edition is also supported. I had to call for support related to DB issues on my end. I was assigned a dedicated support representative who proved to be very helpful. I did an extensive testing to ensure that this product is very reliable. With this product I am planning to scale up my Cloud Disaster Recovery implementation efforts.

five-starsWorks very well. Easy to use. Some minor issues need to be addressed.

We intended to use this software to do a one time migration of SQL databases from our co-located datacenter to AWS. Then figured it is very easy to setup continuous replication from East to West coast (AWS in California to AWS in Virginia). We currently use EC2 SQL Server Web edition in California, replicating to a small RDS Web Edition in Virginia… Read ALL

The most important feature we were looking for was to be able to access the end point of the replica for our reporting. This product replicates between SQL servers manages by us. We have to ensure the destination SQL Server is used in read-only mode, but this gives us the flexibility to setup replication in various scenarios: on-prem to AWS, across AWS regions, zone-to-zone.

Common Use Cases

  • Cross-Region MS SQL Server Replication: Continuously REPLICATE your MS SQL Servers from your data center to AWS, or across AWS regions.
  • Create RDS/SQL Server Read Replicas: Balance read loads for Reporting, Business Intelligence (BI), and Big Data Analytics with robust SQL and RDS Replication tools.
  • Scaling solution for read-only scenarios: Reduce load on source DB by routing read queries from your applications to the Read Replicas in other regions. Read replicas allow you to elastically scale out beyond the capacity constraints of a single DB instance for read-heavy database workloads
  • Aggregate data from various MS SQL Servers in different regions into a single RDS/SQL Server for Reporting, Business Intelligence (BI), and Big Data Analytics
  • Disaster Recovery within AWS: Cross-Region & Cross-AWS-Accounts continuous RDS or EC2 SQL Server replication. Store all DR artifacts in completely separate AWS accounts, to recover from an account level security breach.
  • Disaster Recovery with AWS: continuous replication of On-Premise MS SQL Server to Amazon RDS or EC2 SQL Server.
  • Continuous EC2 SQL Server or RDS Multi-Zone replication with access to the replica end-point. This is also often used for reporting or other purposes.
  • Implement Multi-Region PilotLight , Cold or Warm Fail-over/DR Architecture, with aggressive RTO. For more information visit
  • One-time migration of MS SQL Server to Amazon RDS or EC2 SQL Server. Run continuous MS SQL Server replication over time while configuring and testing your new AWS environment against live production data. Cut-over whenever ready with zero downtime.
  • RDS SQL Server database upsizing/downsizing.
  • Move data from EC2 SQL server to RDS and vice versa.
  • DevOps for RDS/SQL Server. Automate RDS/SQL Server DB deployments by integrating CLOUDBASIC Replicate into your DevOps tools (such as Go & Jenkins).
