The goto NoSql db that one should go to for easy and fast access

Overall the experience have been very good. It's very easy to understand. We had switched from mongodb NoSql db to Amazon dynamodb and comparatively it was easy to migrate.

Pros

Amazon dynamodb is a NoSql db that supports key value pair. It is easy to configure and use in your java code through some function calls. The access control is excellent and we can easily provide restricted access to different type of users.

Cons

The size of data that dynamodb can store in one key value pair or an item is limited to 400 KB. For large data you have to rely on other storage like S3 and then use that referance location in your dynamodb. That should be supported out of the box in dynamodb.

Reasons for Switching to Amazon DynamoDB

Many of our services were in AWS so we had planned to move NoSql db too to AWS using dynamodb

Great noSQL DB for storing data in a secured manner

So far has been good wrt to storing and retrieving data. It is secured and the time taken to retrieve is relatively faster.

Pros

Amazon provides this NoSQL like DB which makes it easier to store and retrieve data. The documenation is well organized which makes it easier to develop applications using DynamoDB

Cons

The query structure seems to be a bit complicated for various fields. The expressions are limited and does not address all business requirements

Great implementation of NoSQL database

Pros

Serverless, fully managed, NoSQL, Schemaless, uses key-value pair to store data. Highly scalable and available database.

Cons

Doesn't provide ACID consistency. Need to improve on item size limits, page size limits and partition throughput limits.

Good choice for No sql database within serverless architecture

I prefer DynamoDb for implementing inexpensive serverless architecture

Pros

DynamoDB has multiple features which can be leveraged for nosql database. I use it within the serverless architecture and it is quite easy to implement in code. The response time of queries is quick and has higher throughput. Read/Write is also inexpensive

Cons

There is a learning curve for those who are not familiar with non rational databases. Also, DynamoDb doesnt support complex joins hence it always needs normalisation on data

A good addition if you already have Amazon S3

As non-relational databases go , DynamoDB is one of the better ones .

Pros

As the title implies , DynamoDB has amazing synergy with Amazon S3 .Replication is intuitive and growing data branches have a lot of room to develop . The program handles the JSON format nicely .

Cons

Writing the queries is a lot more complex , compared to other database options .Indexing partitions and linking them keys can be simplified by a good margin .

DynamoDB makes it so easy to rapidly build a prototype

Makes it easy for rapid prototyping and has become the database solution that we're using for many of our microservices.

Pros

The documentation is fantastic and it makes it so easy to get started and creating our proof of concepts.

Cons

Have no real complaints about DynamoDB, it works for us and is easy to use.
