10 Quick Steps To Create Amazon Free Tier RDS MySql Database Instance

The Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) Free Tier allows you to do some experiment with Amazon RDS for free.

Please note AWS Free Tier is available to you for 12 months starting with the date on which you create your AWS account.

AWS Free Tier with Amazon RDS:

  • AWS provides 750 hours for RDS with single availability zone, db.t2.micro instance with database engine MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle BYOL or SQL Server (SQL Server Express Edition)
  • 20 GB of General Purpose (SSD) DB Storage
  • 20 GB of backup storage for your automated database backups and any user-initiated DB Snapshots

Steps To Create an RDS DB Instance:

1: Sign in to your AWS Management Console and search "RDS" in "AWS Service" search box.

2: Once you find RDS service, Open that Amazon RDS console page.

3: If required, You can change default region by clicking the region menu on upper-right corner.

4: On left side panel click on "Instances" menu, then click on "Launch DB Instance" button.

5: Now you must be on "Select Engine" page, The most important thing here is "Only enable options eligible for RDS Free Usage Tier" option you can see at bottom of this page. Click on that checkbox if not already selected, so that options that are not covered under the Free Tier will be inactive.

Note: Please make sure, do not cross RDS Free Tier limit otherwise it will charge you accordingly in Free tier as well.

6: Choose "MySql" engine and click on "Select" button.

7: On "Specify DB Details" page, Under "Instance Specifications" section,

Select "DB Instance Class" value "db.t2.micro--1vCPU,1GBi RAM"

Set Multi-AZ Deployment to "No"

Keep "Storage Type" and "Allocated Storage" as it is.

Then under "Settings" section, enter values for a "DB Instance Identifier", "Master Username", "Master Password" and "Confirm Password"

Then Click on "Next Step"

8: On the "Configure Advanced" settings page, In "Network & Security" section keep default setting for all fields(VPC, Subnet,Publicly Accessible, Availability Zone & VPC Security Groups).

9: In "Database Options" section, enter your database name and "Enable IAM DB Authentication" to "Yes" (Optional) and keep default setting for other fields.

10: In "Backup" section, set "Backup Retention Period" to (zero) days otherwise it will charge you.
