Model hierarchical automotive component data using Amazon DynamoDB

In this post, we discuss an automotive manufacturing information management use case where we store information about components within a vehicle as well as the hierarchy between each of the components. For our automotive use case, we use Amazon DynamoDB to deliver transactional queries, such as component attribute lookups. We will also show you how to use DynamoDB for larger responses such as a recursive query for all the components in a vehicle. While recursive object relationships can be represented in graph databases and possibly traditional RDBMS (with complex joins), these deeper queries can also be represented in DynamoDB.

Create custom PostgreSQL data types using Trusted Language Extensions

In this post, we demonstrate how to create custom PostgreSQL data types using TLE. PostgreSQL ships with many robust data types that accommodate most customer workloads in a performant manner. Although PostgreSQL has the capabilities to deploy custom data types natively, introducing new data types at scale in architectures spanning multiple AWS accounts and Regions poses a unique challenge for builders. With Trusted Language Extensions (TLE), you can create and manage your custom data types, allowing the quick and easy deployment of PostgreSQL data types across your infrastructures in a secure and efficient manner.
