“We’ve been using Amazon Aurora to support new application development because of its high performance and scalability, and we are eager to migrate our large portfolio of existing applications to Amazon Aurora as well. Our development teams used Babelfish in preview to move one of our mission-critical applications to Amazon Aurora, and the migration required minimal changes in our SQL Server application code. We pointed the applications at Aurora, and it just worked. We are excited for the general availability launch of Babelfish, which will enable us to migrate the rest of our application portfolio to Aurora in a fraction of the time it might otherwise have taken.”
