Overall Satisfaction with Amazon DynamoDB

We use Amazon DynamoDB as a scalable solution for NoSQL related storage of data. It has the benefit of still requiring a schema so it can guarantee your data shape, but it's not as loose or flexible as a JSON database.
  • Scalable data storage
  • Solid DB schema
  • Amazon's reliability
  • Not as flexible as something like Firebase
  • Has a learning curve
  • Ties you into AWS infrastructure
  • Scalability out of the box
  • No server maintenance
  • Infrastructure comes for "free"
There are always newer things coming out, but AWS provide a solid solution for this problem space
It's no replacement for a SQL database, but if you want a NoSQL data storage solution with some rigidity, it's the one to go for.
