Amazon SimpleDB

Well suited for: Games, Chat rooms, real time software like corporate events, marathons and so. Anytime and anywhere you could use a NoSQL DB you should think of SimpleDB.
As an arduous AWS user, Amazon SimpleDB easily integrates with EC2 and other AWS module; and if you are not an AWS user, you also have a fantastic tool that will solve the problem for which you are focused.

Google Cloud Datastore

If you want a serverless NoSQL database, no matter it is for personal use, or for company use, Google Cloud Datastore should be on top of your list, especially if you are using Google Cloud as your primary cloud platform. It integrates with all services in the Google Cloud platform.

I give Google Cloud a full score because it satisfies our needs so well. We host most of our infrastructure on Google Cloud and using Google Cloud Datastore helps us to solve our NoSQL storage problem. and Google Cloud Datastore is so scalable and elastic. It saves us lots of time to maintain and saves us money.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SimpleDB

It integrates beautifully with AWS. In some projects we use SimpleDB while we use DynamoDB for others, according to the characteristics of the project. If the infrastructure is AWS, we always think of one of them.

Google Cloud Datastore

DynamoDB seems more complicated to use, whereas the APIs on Google Cloud Datastore is easier to read and understand. Hence, very easy to get started.
