What is Amazon DynamoDB?Amazon DynamoDB is a NoSQL database service, which helps businesses manage administrative workloads with its built-in security, data backup, recovery, and in-memory caching capabilities. The platform assists users with hardware provisioning, data replication, setup and configuration, software patching, and more.
It allows administrators to create database tables for storing or retrieving data served at any level of request traffic and offers a flexible schema to ensure a consistent throughput capacity for tables. Amazon DynamoDB integrates with AWS Lambda to utilize triggers for executing custom functions for item-level changes across tables. The platform protects customer data using encryption keys stored in AWS key management service and enables developers to build security-sensitive applications for industries such as banking and finance.
Amazon DynamoDB supports ACID transactions to help businesses maintain data correctness across applications, encrypt all data by default, and grant identity and access control to tables. Using the point-in-time recovery capability, teams can protect the database from accidental write or delete operations, create on-demand or continuous backups, and perform restoration operations on tables.
