Export a huge database from Amazon RDS to local mysql


I have a mysql database on a Amazon RDS (About 600GB of data) I need to move it back home to our local dedicated servers, but I don't know where to start. Every time I try to init a sqldump it freezes, are there a way to move it on to S3? maybe even splitting it to smaller parts before starting the download?

How would you go about migrating a 600GB mysql DB?

If anything, this is just a really short answer.

If the data is that big I would suggest copying the RDS snapshot on S3, as explained here.
