AWS — 3

Database in AWS

AWS provides two types of database services for the EC2 instances.

RDS supports six database engines until now:

Dynamo DB — Dynamo DB is a fully managed, fast and highly scalable NoSQL database by AWS. Dynamo DB is fully manageable so the user doesn’t need to care about underlying hardware AWS will take care of it.

Amazon DynamoDB is a fast and flexible NoSQL database service for applications that need consistent, single-digit millisecond latency at any scale. Its a fully managed cloud database, and it supports both document and key-value store models. Unlike RDS, with Amazon DynamoDB you don’t need to define the underlying hardware you’re running your database on.
