Amazon Database Migration Service (Amazon DMS) helps you migrate databases to Amazon Web Services quickly and securely. With this launch, Amazon DMS now supports Amazon S3 folder partitions based on transaction commit dates when using Amazon S3 as a target. Using date-based folder partitioning, you can write data from a single source table to a time-hierarchy folder structure in Amazon S3. By partitioning the S3 folder, you can better manage your S3 objects, limit the size of each S3 folder, and optimize data lake queries or other subsequent operations. This launch is now available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. 

For more information on this feature, see “Use date partitioning when using S3 as a target". For Amazon DMS regional availability, please refer to the Amazon Web Services Region Table.
