Amazon RDS Integration

Amazon RDS (Relational Database Service) is a web service that makes it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient, resizeable capacity for an industry-standard relational database and manages common database administration tasks.

​What does OpsGenie offer Amazon RDS users?

Amazon RDS can send notifications of database events, through SNS. OpsGenie acts as a dispatcher for these notifications, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, notifying them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Simply, RDS sends DB notifications like shutdown or backup etc., and OpsGenie ensures the right people are notified

Functionality of the integration

When an alert is created in RDS, an alert is created in OpsGenie automatically through the integration.
