Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a web service that makes it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud.
Relational databases are complex. In all of my introductory courses I want to give you a high level look at the product. This isn’t a deep dive course. This is a… “ahhh, that’s where I backup my database or limit the user connections.” This is a… “ahhh, that’s how I install MySQL on Windows” course.
MySQL is a full-featured relational database management system (RDBMS) that competes with the likes of Oracle DB and Microsoft’s SQL Server. The RDS cloud implementation is a full featured MySQL RDMS. 
The basic building block of Amazon RDS is the DB instance. A DB instance is an isolated database environment in the cloud.  A DB instance can contain multiple user-created databases, and you can access it by using the same tools and applications that you use with a stand-alone database instance.

Databases hold structured data. It’s important to understand the difference between structured and unstructured data. MySQL is a relational database. The data we place in relational database has structure because we define how the data is to be stored using data types.  
In the relational database, we model data like products, categories, tags, etc., using tables. A table contains columns and rows. It is like a spreadsheet. 
Because we deal with a large amount of data, we need a way to define the databases, tables, views, stored procedures and other objects process data more effectively.

Experience, education and passion 
I learn something almost every day. I work with insanely smart people. I’m a voracious learner of all things SQL Server and I’m passionate about sharing what I’ve learned. My area of concentration is performance tuning. SQL Server is like an exotic sports car, it will run just fine in anyone’s hands but put it in the hands of skilled tuner and it will perform like a race car. 
Certifications are like college degrees, they are a great starting points to begin learning. I’m a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA), Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). 
Born in Ohio, raised and educated in Pennsylvania, I currently reside in Atlanta with my wife and two children.
