#Migration of NoSQL Databases at AWS Database Migration Service

From now on, AWS Database Migration Service supports the migration of NoSQL databases. MongoDB can now be defined as a migration source and Amazon DynamoDB as a migration destination.

This opens up a variety of different databases, which can be streamed and includes, in addition to MongoDB, all databases supported by AWS DMS such as Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle Database, SAP ASE and Microsoft SQL Server.

The AWS Database Migration Service helps migrating relational databases, NoSQL databases and universal databases.

#Easier AWS Account Organization Through New User Interface (UI)

AWS has greatly simplified the management of AWS accounts by introducing a new structure and additional improvements.

Where previously each account had to be managed individually, several accounts can now belong to a group and can be organized together, e.g. by creating rules for the entire group. It’s also possible to search now for individial accounts and organization units (OU) and also display hierachies with detailed information.

The new interface is available for all AWS organization customers at no additional fee.

#Improved Configuration Setup at AWS CloudTrail

AWS CloudTrail offers the change history now from the beginning. This means, that all changes in the configuration setup will be saved instead of saving the changes only when the instances are fully operational.

The improvements make it possible to trace accesses and changes throughout, which is of great importance for sensitive or especially protective data.
