"Massivly scalable and reliable"

What do you like best?

Reliability, replication scalability and performance. If you already have basic understanding of No sql databases you will find the apis easy to understand and would be very confident on predicting actual performance of your table based on read/write capacity units. However With new feature of dynamic capacity., the effort of figuring out right capacity also goes away. I have found a ver

What do you dislike?

For someone who don't know how noSQL database works, may find its architecture little difficult to understand.Having a Sql interface would help for the people like those.Which i believe is there but not properly documented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a massive regisrty of custom resources and services and corresponding user level access privileges. with dynamodb this has become easily searchable. using this we have created our own highly scalable authorizer service at an enterprise level.

"Dynamodb accelerator"

What do you like best?

the best thing about DAX is that it's a transparent cache layer. it's not a traditional side-cache. which means that it does not have any coherency issues as usual, and that is great. also the fact that it is fully managed is great of course.

What do you dislike?

I probably dislike mostly the price which can get very high when dealing with high volumes of data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

obviously speed and performance. we experienced some issues due to faster performance of some of our applications then the responses of the dynamodb database. caching mostly solved it.

What Other Non-Relational Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"DynamoDb Accelerator is a cloud alternative for Redis"

What do you like best?

Allows you to use the in memory cache on cloud which allows easy development of serverless applications

What do you dislike?

It has been very expensive to use and can only be used with java applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just think about the cost expectations you have because using DAX is costly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to process a lot of data in memory before saving it finally so DAX let's us do that before creating Custom Objects and storing those in dynamodb.

"Amazing DAX"

What do you like best?

The best thing about DAX is that it is cloud-based. You can manage it using the Amazon AWS. Scalability is a big plus of this software, based on your needs it can scale very rapidly. The cache has helped us to fasten our cloud-based services.

What do you dislike?

Only thing is the pricing; you really need to have a realistic expectation set before using this tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since it is Cloud-based, our cloud services deployment has become much faster and easier. The turn around time of the services has decreased significantly after using DAX.

"Amazon DynamoDB"

What do you like best?

Amazon DynamoDB is already fantastic for NoSQL database use. I use it for many applications. DAX is great for tables that are hit a lot, which is great for scaling where your table may be perhaps hitting a lot of scans or queries.

What do you dislike?

While not a dislike of DAX persay, it does cost some more in addition to your other DynamoDB costs on a per hour basis. So, it can drive up costs a little bit- depending on one's settings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's great for tables that are heavily used
