Compare Cloud Databases


DynamoDB, a key/value data store, becomes costly with growth. Linear pricing doesn’t scale and expenses soar with add-ons for caching and other features as data sets grow.


As a general-purpose database, many projects have started with MongoDB. But as applications grow, challenges often arise with scalability, stability, and performance.
