I have a dedicated box that has a 20 gig database residing on it.  We are in transition from this dedicated box to a AWS EC2 & RDS box.

I'm trying to figure out how I can just pull that database directly from the current dedicated box to AWS vs trying to download locally and upload to AWS due to size would be very inefficient.
