I rate AWS Database Migration Service six out of 10. However, if you are considering it, you should get a good idea of what you need. It's useful for some jobs, but you need to know how to use this better.

AWS is the leading provider of cloud services. It has extensive experience in this kind of scenario. The other cloud providers need to improve their tools and their licensing procedures. In this case, the licensing procedures are very complex for migration scenarios. On a scale from one to ten, I would give AWS Database Migration Service a seven.

I have not explored other solutions like GCP or Azure, but I have used the AWS side. On a scale of one to ten, I would give AWS Database Migration a seven. This score is because of a few difficulties I faced when setting it up. Because I worked on different applications on a couple of projects, I cannot completely make use of the AWS database. Maybe that is a developer mistake or something. That's the reason I am rating it a seven for now.

It is a good program and I will give it an eight out of ten rating. I would like to see more migration options in the next release.

I'm a consultant. We use the public cloud deployment model. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
