Get Started – Configure RDS SQL Server AlwaysOn/Geo-Replication (Multi-AZ/Multi-AR) w/ Readable-Replicas

Get Started - Configure Multi-AZ or Multi-AR (Cross-Region/Geo-Replication) w/ Readable-Replicas

If launching an instance outside of the AWS Marketplace, you will receive an AMI ID and an activation key over email. Locate the AMI ID in the list of Community AMIs and launch as an EC2 server within or outside of your VPC. Once the instance is running, and port 80 opened in the security group, connect to it by pointing a browser to the public DNS root URL (or IP) at default www port 80 (it might take a while for all services to initialize). Activate with the provided activation key. Login with user: admin, initial temporary password: {EC2 Instance ID} (required for security reasons). Upon successful login, you will land on the Quick Setup page, which will allow you to initiate Hybrid/RDS/EC2 SQL Server replication in various scenarios, in just a few clicks. For more information, visit the Prerequisites section of the documentation.

Note: If the VPC does not allow public access, the activation process will switch to manual activation mode, in which case you would open an URL pointing to CloudBasic activation servers on AWS outside of your VPC. You will be asked to copy and paste back an activation code.

You can choose to contact CLOUDBASIC for training and support, have a support representative walk you through the replication process:

Multi-AR features S3 (RedShift, EMR Hadoop) data feeds. It allows to continuously feed data from RDS/EC2 SQL Server or from On-Premise to S3 (SCD Types 1-3) from where data can be loaded into RedShift or EMR/Hadoop for BI/Reporting/DWH with i.e. Tibco SpotFire/JaperSoft or Tableau.
