Differences between Amazon DocumentDB and Amazon DynamoDB (as seen on AWS Twitch show)
AWS has the broadest selection with 15+ purpose-built databases. Among them, Amazon DocumentDB is a fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB workloads, and Amazon DynamoDB is a serverless key-value database that delivers single-digit millisecond performance at any scale. While both Amazon DocumentDB and DynamoDB are non-relational databases, they have different purposes and customers sometimes ask us which service they should use and when.
Watch this episode of Build with DynamoDB on Twitch, where Amazon DocumentDB and DynamoDB experts, Edin Zulich and Jeff Duffy help you learn the purpose of each service, the use cases that they are best suited for, and when you should use one versus the other.
