  • Relational DB : – These are like Excel spreadsheets , which can use SQL language to perform Lookups.
  • No SQL DB: – It is build for specific purpose/data, flexible schemes.

Benefits of DB:

  • Flexibility
  • Scalability
  • High Performance
  • Highly Functional

Benefits of AWS:

  • Quick Provisioning
  • High Availability (HA)
  • Vertical & Horizontal Scaling
  • Auto Backup & Restore
  • OS Monitoring
  • Alerting

  • It is fully managed highly available with replication across 3 AZ
  • No SQL DB
  • Serverless DB
  • Million of request
  • Integrated with IAM
  • Data type – Key/value d/b


It is based on Postgress SQL, but not for OLTP (online transition processing)

  • 10 x better performance than other db warehouses
  • Massively parallel query execution
  • Pay as you go based
  • Has a SQL interface for performing the queries
  • Integrated with BI Tools

Amazon EMR

  • Elastic Map Reduce
  • Creates Hadoop Clusters (Big data) analyze process vast a mount of data
  • Apache, Spark , KBase
