    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.

    Percona Server for MongoDB

    It offers good support for the implementation of solutions in the public and on-premises cloud and integration with other services such as Hashicorp Vault for data encryption. One of the main advantages is the ease of configuration, in addition to offering transaction support for the different operations and scalability of the servers.

    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.

    Percona Server for MongoDB

    • High performance
    • Integration with other tools and services
    • Big data projects oriented
    • High availability and scalability
    Jose Manuel Ortega | 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).

    Percona Server for MongoDB

    • The learning curve makes it a bit tricky to use at first.
    • Documentation is an aspect to improve, especially for people who are just starting out.
    • At the interface level, the user experience could be improved.

    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.

    One aspect to improve is the user experience since sometimes the steps to take are not clear and the user may need to review some of the actions before continuing with the next ones. Another aspect to improve is the documentation and support for developers who want to know the tool.

    It offers good support for the implementation of solutions in the public and on-premises cloud and integration with other services such as Hashicorp Vault for data encryption. Also, it offers support for different compatible programming languages such as C, C ++, Java, as well as offering good support for the persistence of schema-free data and the possibility of saving data in memory.

    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.

    Percona Server for MongoDB

    At the performance level, it is similar to other solutions such as MongoDB and Percona Server for MySQL. and at the customization level, it offers better support for the development of specific solutions that seek good performance in transactions.

    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.

    Percona Server for MongoDB

    • It offers a good alternative solution compared with other open source databases.
    • We have many resources at the documentation level and other tools that help the integration with different programming languages.
