DRAW AN AWS DIAGRAM
The table below contains the most current AWS Simple Icons in the Database set — all listed by service category and complete with a brief introduction to the product or service symbolized.
AWS Database Services includes 15 unique engines built to fit specific business needs. They’re managed by Amazon, saving teams time on tasks like configuration and backups. These services have their own icons, as well as additional icons specific to each service.
MySQL DB Instance
Oracle DB Instance

Another basic building block of Amazon RDS is the PostgreSQL instance. A database instance is an isolated database environment in the cloud. Amazon RDS supports PostgreSQL DB engines, so you can use this icon to represent a PostgreSQL instance in your diagram.
