Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched a new NoSQL database that can be used in Amazon’s cloud. Dubbed DynamoDB, the new service is “the result of 15 years of learning in the areas of large scale non-relational databases and cloud services,” said Amazon CTO Werner Vogels.
He added, “DynamoDB is based on the principles of Dynamo, a progenitor of NoSQL, and brings the power of the cloud to the NoSQL database world. It offers customers high-availability, reliability, and incremental scalability, with no limits on dataset size or request throughput for a given table.”
Pricing for DynamoDB is a little bit complicated, but there is a free tier for developers with modest needs.
