The main reason is that it is a tool with very high performance, high level of security, does not require installation, in addition to that it is quickly integrated with other AWS tools, which considerably speeds up development time, can be accessed from various platforms It is quite simple to make CRUD with this tool, and its command line is very simple to learn, in addition to that it greatly facilitates the development of scalable projects.

As with most Amazon Services, it isn't about renewal of DynamoDB, it's about continued use of the service with a realistic pay per value approach. If a service is viable to a business, then it is used and you can always consolidate away unused services. We will continue use of DynamoDB until it doesn't deliver as well as other technologies/services.

Unless we find any huge flaws in DynamoDB we're going to stick with it. At the moment, and at the scale we're operating on, DynamoDB is the ideal solution in terms of pricing, reliability and development costs. Since our entire infrastructure is already in AWS, using a tool inside the suite is also something we prefer and prioritize before considering other offerings.

The rating is based on the smooth experience we have had with Amazon DynamoDB. Our project has scaled very well and we've never had a data breach thanks to the encryption services provided by Amazon. We are not worried about the type of data which we may encounter since this can handle both structured and unstructured data very well. The throughput has been exceptional and the response time is in milliseconds although the database has grown many folds.

It's a no brainer that we will be renewing our licenses with DynamoDB as it mainly fits really well with the AWS ecosystem. In addition, high scalability and high availability with reduced costs make it an easy choice to stick to DynamoDB.

If you company has already implemented an AWS environment and seeks to have noSQL service, DynamoDB is definitely the way to go. It has great performance. And it scales well. But if you are trying to shop around among different cloud providers, you can check first. For personal use, it is easy and fast to deploy as well.

Our projects are ongoing and continual and will continue running on serverless backends.

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 AWS Lambda makes it easy to trigger events and run code whenever something changes in the database.

Easy to use and easy to stop using. It is the perfect interim solution for any team needing a rapid database solution without the hassle and restrictions of a full-RDS database. While it is a pain to use outside of infrastructure systems hosted on AWS, it is perfect for those that are.

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.

We are actively moving away from it, but likely will keep some aspects on the service because we do value the speed. There is a free tier and we understand the indexes more, so we are able to bring the costs down. Any that has complex data, needs structure, or has associations we are moving to MySQL.

Our integration within the AWS environment makes DynamoDB a no brainer. The permissions management makes a lot of sense within our AWS accounts since we have already configured access permissions for users across our entire organization. DynamoDB is also already heavily relied upon by multiple applications across our organization and especially ones developed by my team. Though there are alternatives, we don't have any good reasons to switch.

This is really good use case for very large systems and use cases. I Always prefer using Amazon DynamoDB to use for our services.
They have a great API too which solve our use cases and is very handy to use.

We started with DynamoDB for few of the applications that I built as its a pragmatic solution. But as our data started to evolve, we started to hit limitations of the DynamoDB's querying and it gets increasingly frustrating to write code around the DynamoDB's limitations that I mentioned earlier. This caused us to switch from DynamoDB to Postgres in both the cases where we mixed the traditional SQL with NoSQL data.

We're stuck with it for now, but if we could do it again, we certainly would not choose DynamoDB again. There are too many other good options for NoSQL databases now, even within Amazon's "borders". However, for the moment, the application is reliable and useful, so it is accomplishing its objective, we just had high hopes that we could use it for many other customer facing features once the data had been stored – not really the case, or at least not affordably the case.

Its more of a we are locked in and migration would be more time and resource intensive than is worth it. It is better to find ways to optimize dynamo usage like custom scaling, Redis based caches, or moving data to S3 than to leave the platflorm completely. It provides enough incentive and usefulness to continue to use
