Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a database service that is purpose-built for JSON data management at scale, fully managed and integrated with AWS, and enterprise-ready with high durability.

Today, Amazon DocumentDB added support for the Decimal128 data type. Decimal128 is a BSON data type and provides 128 bits of decimal representation supporting 34 decimal digits of precision and an exponent range of -6143 to +6144.

For more information on supported MongoDB APIs, operations, and data types, see our documentation. The Decimal128 data type is supported in all regions where DocumentDB is available.
