1. Overview

  • A database that offers the best of relational and non-relational features.
  • A database that can be used for building global scale, consistent applications for transactions and inventory management.
  • Supports automatic, synchronous replication for high availability and horizontal scalability.
  • Delivers a NoSQL solution with transactional consistency.
  • Transactional database service that replicates data across regions.
  • Combine the benefits of relational database structures with non-relational horizontal scale.
  • Horizontally scalable relational database.
  • Best for large petabyte scale database applications.
  • Delivers full globally replicated SQL database support.
  • Ideal for use when global horizontal scalability through replicas is needed.
  • Offers transactional consistency at a global scale.
