  • It is always available so the projects have never had any problems at the hosting level, the connection is very stable, and the customers and users are very satisfied with the performance of the applications.
  • Thanks to this tool, the monetary investment in the hosting of the project can be controlled very well, since it allows to pay only for what is used.

  • For us, it was the correct choice because most of our data is already stored in Amazon S3 and we were already making use of AWS Lamda and API gateway. So, this product fit the bill very smoothly and we didn't have to make any changes.
  • It is very cost-effective if you understand how to properly use it in your project and not just throw everything towards it. It has also helped to maintain a state of always available and high responsive irrespective of the incoming traffic.
  • The most important factor which has really paid back well is the scalability portion. That was one of our top priorities and Amazon DynamoDB has delivered stupendously on that. We can grow as much as we want and still get a read/write operation done in milliseconds.

Return on Investment

  • Saved us a lot of money as we did not have to invest in resources to manage or maintain the product.
  • We did not have to invest in additional servers only for peak traffic durations. We made use of DynamoDB's scaling capability functions.
  • DynomoDB fits very well into the AWS ecosystem. It will be a no brainer if the organization is already using AWS.

  • 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.

Return on Investment

  • DynamoDB allowed us to quickly launch applications and data ingestions that we thought would take months to implement. While it turned out to be an unfruitful DBaaS system to support an application, its quick launch and self-sustaining capabilities allowed it to work effortlessly while our DevOps team could focus on more permanent application solutions.

  • Saved lot of money for us because of its support to auto-scaling.
  • As its NOSQL so if you are not doing proper analysis before deciding to go with NoSQL it can be disastrous, fortunately, we never faced such negatives.

  • We moved to DynamoDB from MongoDB, for now. DynamoDB is cheaper.
  • DynamoDB is faster than MongoDB, better response between services.

  • DynamoDB has increased developer velocity because developers do not need to build and manage datastores.
  • DynamoDB can be extremely inexpensive for some use-cases, such as non-critical, low-volume applications that need a simple datastore.
  • DynamoDB has allowed us to adhere to design patterns like one-database-per-service that we might have violated if we had to pay for RDS.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • We were able to achieve our goal using Amazon – store every single email our system that has ever been sent in fluid database for long term recover without significantly impacting query times at scale.
  • We have been unable to effectively add additional features using the data set because of the pricing structure and incurred cost involved with performing repeated scans over the dataset.
