Use DMS free for 5 days to migrate your On-Premise, EC2 or RDS SQL Server database to RDS or EC2 SQL Server, without downtime. Run continuous replication, cut-over whenever you are ready.
The replication engine supports all versions of MS SQL Server, including MS SQL Server Web and Express Editions. It supports migration of RDS even if Multi-AZ and Encryption are enabled.
if you are considering migration to RDS Multi-AZ, note that Multi-AZ for MS SQL Server does not (1) create Read-Replicas, mirrored instance cannot be used for reporting (2) MS SQL Server Web Edition is not supported (3) Multi-AZ does not create true DR, as the mirrored instances are created in same region (4) RDS Multi-AZ costs double without providing access to Read-Replicas.
Consider using CLOUDBASIC Multi-AZ-AR for MS SQL Server Web Edition to create Zone-to-Zone or Cross-Region Geo Read-Replicas. It delivers more functionality for 1/2 the cost of RDS Multi-AZ. Learn More >>

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.
