Why Do I Need to Use the mysqldump or pg_dump Tools for Migration?

Updated at: Jun 09, 2021 GMT+08:00

The mysqldump or pg_dump tool is easy to use for data migration. However, when you use this tool, the server is stopped for a long period of time during data migration. Only use these tools when there is not much data to migrate or if stopping the server for a long period of time is not an issue.

RDS is compatible with source database services. The procedure for migrating data from your database to RDS is similar to the procedure for migrating data from one database server to another.
