Is using a RDS instance in AWS possible

Is it possible to change the database to point to a RDS instance in AWS? Id rather not have my database on the same instance as the application. I feel like I have looked pretty hard through the docs an I dont see any mention of redirecting where the database is hosted. Anyone else doing this?

You can use any RDBMS that is supported by Hibernate 3.x. See

However we officially support only a subset which means you may need some tuning for your DB, see also

The fact that the DB is local or remote has no incidence on the setup. You are the one specifying the JDBC URL to your DB and thus you choose where the DB is located.

Hope it helps
