Amazon DynamoDB

  • Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service where maintenance, administrative burden, operations and scaling are managed by AWS.

  • We don't need to provide the specifications of how much we are going to save.

  • It provides single digit latency, even for terabytes of data. This is why it is used for applications where very fast reads are required.

  • It is used in applications like gaming where data needs to be captured and changes take place very quickly.
