Introduction 

AWS offers fully managed relational and NoSQL database services, as well as in-memory caching and a petabyte-scale data warehouse solution. This article presents an overview of the database services' products. Before knowing about Amazon Database Services, let us understand AWS and Database.

AWS

AWS (Amazon Web Services) is the most sophisticated and widely used cloud platform globally, with over 200 fully-featured services available from data centers around the globe. AWS is being used by millions of customers, including the fastest-growing startups, most giant corporations, and major government agencies, to lower costs, improve agility, and support innovation.

Database

A database is a set of data that has been organized to allow for simple access, administration, and updating. Data records or files containing information, such as sales transactions, customer data, financials, and product information, are often stored in computer databases.

Types of AWS Database Services

There are the following different types of database services provided by AWS:

  • AMAZON RELATIONAL DATABASE SERVICE (AMAZON RDS)
  • AMAZON DYNAMODB
  • AMAZON AURORA
  • AMAZON REDSHIFT
  • AMAZON ELASTICACHE

AMAZON RELATIONAL DATABASE SERVICE (AMAZON RDS)

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) provides a fully managed relational database service that supports many open-source and commercial database engines. It's a low-cost service that enables organizations to quickly establish secure, highly available, fault-tolerant, production-ready databases. Because Amazon RDS handles time-consuming administrative duties like backups, software patching, monitoring, scaling, and replication, organizational resources may concentrate on revenue-generating applications and business.

AMAZON DYNAMODB

Amazon DynamoDB is a high-performance, scalable NoSQL database service for any applications that require consistent, single-digit millisecond latency. It's a fully managed database that can handle both document and key/value data. Its flexible data model and dependable performance make it ideal for mobile, web, gaming, ad-tech, IoT, and various other applications.

AMAZON AURORA

Amazon RDS fully manages Amazon Aurora. It is a cloud-based relational database engine. Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL compatible relational database engine that combines the availability and performance of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity of use and low cost of open source databases. All administration tasks like database setup, patching, backups, and more are automated because RDS fully manages Amazon Aurora.

AMAZON REDSHIFT

Amazon Redshift is a rapid, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service that makes structured data analysis simple and cost-effective. Amazon Redshift has a standard SQL interface that allows organizations to utilize their existing business analytics tools. Amazon Redshift is able to deliver rapid query performance by utilizing columnar storage technology, which enhances I/O efficiency, and parallelizes queries across numerous nodes. Most administrative tasks associated with installing, establishing, and monitoring a cloud data warehouse may be automated using the Amazon Redshift architecture.

AMAZON ELASTICACHE

ElastiCache is a web service by Amazon that makes deploying, running, and scaling an in-memory cache in the cloud simple. The service enhances web application performance by letting organizations get information from fast, controlled in-memory caches rather than relying only on slower, disk-based databases. Amazon ElastiCache supports Memcached and Redis cache engines as of this writing.

FAQs

What services are used in AWS?

Amazon Web Services offers many cloud-based services, including computation, storage, analytics, databases, networking, management tools, mobile developer tools, Internet of Things (IoT), security, and corporate applications. These services help organizations to move more quickly, reduce IT expenses, and scale.

What is the difference between Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora?

RDS allows you to provision up to 5 replicas, although the replication procedure is slower than Aurora. Aurora allows you to supply up to 15 replicas in milliseconds. Aurora scales more quickly because it can rapidly add new read replicas.

Which is the best database available in AWS?

DocumentDB, DynamoDB, Neptune, and Quantum Ledger Database are some of the best database options.

What is snowball in AWS?

AWS Snowball is a service that allows us to deliver AWS computation and storage capabilities to our edge locations and move data into and out of AWS using secure, rugged devices.
