Choosing the Right Tool for the Job: Purpose-built Databases from AWS [IDC White Paper]

AWS provides a broad set of database services spanning 15 database engines to provide customers with choice. Choose the right database for the application, not the other way around. With purpose-built, fully managed database services that span relational and non-relational, you can build on whatever is the right tool for the job without the overhead of installing and maintaining each database.

This AWS sponsored IDC report provides a detailed overview of AWS relational database services like Amazon Aurora with full MySQL and PostgreSQL compatibility to non-relational, serverless Amazon DynamoDB with dynamic scaling capabilities.

Learning Objectives:

• See why workloads work better when associated with the right database for the job
• Discover the database models and typical workloads for each AWS database service
• Learn how each database service works, including non-relational graph, document and in-memory databases
