Database Platform Rates

OTS is changing how databases are charged; currently there is a per-database fee on top of storage and server costs to cover licenses and database admins. OTS will be moving to a per-instance model in the near future to allow the greater customization of CPU and memory, as well as unlimited databases per instance. 


AWS RDS instances are available in the OTS Virtual Private Cloud but must be approved on a per project basis. Current offerings are Aurora, SQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL and MariaDB. Additionally, there are a number of non-relational databases, in-memory datastore options, as well as solutions for data warehouse (Redshift) and graph databases (Neptune). 

All AWS Services: 20% markup (covers administration, overhead, firewall, intrusion detection, etc. in transit Virtual Private Cloud).
