Developers are breaking up complex applications into smaller pieces, looking for the best tool to solve each problem. AWS helps developers build these cloud-native modern applications with the broadest selection of purpose-built databases, offering scale, performance, and manageability. In this tech talk, we’ll focus on Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra) – serverless, non-relational databases offering elastic scalability, pay-as-you-go billing, tunable consistency, durability, and availability to help you meet the demands of your most mission-critical business requirements. We’ll also dive deep into fundamental data topics such as schema, denormalization, concurrency control, access control, and the importance of interface choices.
