Happy seventh birthday to Amazon DynamoDB!
Seven years ago today, AWS CTO Werner Vogels announced the release of Amazon DynamoDB. We developed DynamoDB on the core principles from a whitepaper published in October 2007, and over the last seven years, we have continued to build this fast and flexible NoSQL database service for any scale, one of a selection of AWS purpose-built databases.
We thought it would be fun to look back on the “What’s New” posts from just 2018 and 2017 to show the more-recent growth of DynamoDB. These posts cover a gamut of feature releases including transactions, on-demand capacity mode, point-in-time recovery, global tables, backup and restore, and auto scaling.
Here’s to many more DynamoDB birthdays to come!
2018 – Transactions, on-demand, and PITR
2017 – Global tables, backup and restore, and auto scaling
