Can we use Amazon RDS in the Orion Database or is this not a supported environment?


  • All Orion platforms 


SolarWinds products running on Orion Platform 2018.2 fully support Amazon’s RDS Database-as-a-Service (DaaS). Products running on Orion Platform 2017.3 and earlier do not provide support for database installations in Amazon RDS. We recommend using a separate, dedicated SQL EC2 instance when deploying Orion in the Cloud.


For more information, please refer to Orion Platform Database Server (SQL Server) requirements.

All product versions, including your version of Orion Platform, are displayed in the footer of the Orion Web Console login page.
