    Amazon DynamoDB

    It is ideal for those projects where you need to store a large amount of data, but you do not know how many will be so you need the database to increase its storage capacity together with the number of users, without having to spend extra money, it also has a great potential thanks to the fast connection it offers, so the data travels at high speed, and this speeds up the performance of the applications, excellent for projects where non-relational databases are used and what matters is to store large quantities of information and use them at high speed.

    InterSystems IRIS

    It is best suited in the scenario where a single interface is required for providing [a complete end-to-end] solution to the customers. You don't need [a] separate platform to write code or [perform] database operations. All you need is InterSystems IRIS software and you are done. You can also use analytics functionality which is one of the greatest [features] which many customers need for their solution[.]

    Pros

    Amazon DynamoDB

    • It's very easy to get started, creating a table with a partition/sort key and you're on your way.
    • You can scale up and down your read/write IO as needed.
    • You can store structured and unstructured data.
    • It works great with Web Development as it's JSON based.
    Bob Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

    InterSystems IRIS

    • 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.
    Kyle Wagner | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Amazon DynamoDB

    • Complex searching (no support for case-insensitive or full-text search).
    • Only supports up to two-key indexes.
    • Requires choosing the indexes up-front when doing searches.
    • Does not have an SQL compatible query front-end.
    • No join-table support (requires putting all data into one table).
    Chris Moyer | TrustRadius Reviewer

    InterSystems IRIS

    • There should be better tutorials so that people can learn how to use the application correctly and derive their benefits from using the application.
    • The administration portal is difficult to use, therefore, this should be improved.
    • The number of themes in the application should be increased.

    We will most likely continue to use DynamoDB for certain use-cases. If we stopped using DynamoDB as often, it would likely be because we started using Aurora Serverless more. Aurora Serverless may offer similar availability, management and cost benefits while allowing developers to use their MySQL tools and experience.

    Very easy to use and we can quickly prototype something using DynamoDB to verify its viability.

    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.

    The InterSystems WRC has always been helpful and responsive. The folks I have spoken with are always understanding of our needs and questions and regardless of if the question is simple or complex we are always met with the same professionalism and helpfulness every time. I have no hesitations contacting InterSystems for help!

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon DynamoDB

    We evaluated using MongoDB or Amazon DyanmoDB. For us, the biggest advantage is that there's no maintenance cost for Amazon DynamoDB. Mongo gets complicated when you setup sharding. With Amazon DynamoDB, it's literally a push of button to increase throughput. This saves time and money on DevOps resources.

    Because [it's] a very powerful and efficient tool that has the ability to manage your data in a quick and reliable manner. It's easy to use especially if you work in the area of managing a large number of databases or simply need an extra hand. Inter Systems IRIS can provide that amount of support because it is just an extraordinary tool!

    Return on Investment

    Amazon DynamoDB

    • Since the Amazon manages the instance, the amount of time a developer needs to spend configuring the database is less. For comparison, if we were to manage the same instance manually, we need to set up EC2 instance, install the DB, setup backup scripts, track backup failures, which is a great overhead for the dev. Using DynamoDB this overhead is reduced and hence having a great ROI.
    • Great documentation and easy setup makes an easy learning curve to transition to DynamoDB. Only caveat is as with any database, the data structure should be thoroughly analyzed for types of querying because there are limitations with the DynamoDB API.
    • Ties very well with rest of the Amazon eco system. Having rest of the applications in Amazon allows managing the application security a breeze.

    InterSystems IRIS

    • 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.
