It’s great for server less and real-time applications. It would be great for gaming and mobile apps. However, if you need relational database and have fixed budget, do not use it. While budget can be managed, you need to be careful. Also this is not a tool for storing big data, there are other wide-column database types you could use for it ins the ad

Intersystems IRIS is a really great tool for Interoperability. It has so many capabilities out of the box and then such a great developer community on top of that, that there are really no limits to what you can do in terms of data manipulation and translation. Personally I find it to be a great tool if you are looking for Interoperability software.
Read full review Pros To manage varying workloads, it enables users to increase capacity as necessary and decrease it as needed. Users can take advantage of its auto-scaling, in-memory caching, and backup without paying for the services of a database administrator. We can use it for low scale operations. Read full review Connecting with mutliple vendor platforms and systems allowing us to consume and provide data as needed. Allowed us to implement our own RESTful api engine to server data to our internal applications. Setting up their recommendations for high availability allow us to perform server maintenance with minimal down time to our users. Read full review Cons Cost model may not be easy to control and may lead to higher costs if not carefully planned Indexing may be a cost culprit when not planned, because it's not included on the data costs The Query Language may not fulfill everybody's expectations, as it has less features than those of competitors. Read full review The documentation can be excellent for some things but then is non-existent for explaining other things. There should be more consistency in the level of the documentation on offer. Not all the methods for classes work, in particular, I have found half the methods for EnsLib.Rest.Service does not work, and doesn't provide any examples of how to use them (e.g. ReportHTTPStatusCode()).

It's core to our business, we couldn't survive without it. We use it to drive everything from FTP logins to processing stories and delivering them to clients. It's reliable and easy to query from all of our pipeline services. Integration with things like
makes it easy to trigger events and run code whenever something changes in the database.
Read full review Usability
Functionally, DynamoDB has the features needed to use it. The interface is not as easy to use, which impacts its usability. Being familiar with AWS in general is helpful in understanding the interface, however it would be better if the interface more closely aligned with traditional tools for managing datastores.

The interface is very intuitive, the documentation is very good so it is not complicated to operate.
The security is complex, but you can create a special role to access and the user ONLY can operate with the part that it allows.
Also, you can examine the data very quick with the SQL Browser integrated.

It works very well across all the regions and response time is also very quick due to AWS's internal data transfer. Plus if your product requires HIPPA or some other regulations needs to be followed, you can easily replicate the DB into multiple regions and they manage all by it's own.

I have not had to contact support for this service, however I have had to contact AWS for other services and their support has been good.

The only thing that can be compared to DynamoDB from the selected services can be Aurora. It is just that we use Aurora for High-Performance requirements as it can be 6 times faster than normal RDS DB. Both of them have served as well in the required scenario and we are very happy with most of the AWS services.

We are using InterSystems IRIS [especially] for database operations as the query performance is really good for [a large] amount of customer data. You can easily integrate for any application like web, desktop, and many more. It also provides BI functionality which is also very easy to implement using InterSystems IRIS[.]
Read full review Scalability
I have taken one point away due to its size limits. In case the application requires queries, it becomes really complicated to read and write data. When it comes to extremely large data sets such as the case in my company, a third-party logistics company, where huge amount of data is generated on a daily basis, even though the scalability is good, it becomes difficult to manage all the data due to limits.
Read full review Return on Investment Some developers see DynamoDB and try to fit problems to it, instead of picking the best solution for a given problem. This is true of any newer tool that people are trying to adopt. It has allowed us to add more scalability to some of our systems. As with any new technology there was a ramp up/rework phase as we learned best practices. Read full review Very Fast and scalable software to deal with big data flow, safe and robust. The studio IDE is quite old fashion and lacks a few facilities amazing for complex data consumption, its milyi-model capability wich allows multiple different models for a single set of codes.
