Level: 200

Joe Idziorek, Principal Product Manager at AWS, outlines a purpose-built strategy for databases, where you choose the right tool for the job. Joe explains why your application should drive the requirements of a database, not the other way around. We introduce AWS databases that are purpose-built for your application use cases. Learn why you should select different database services to solve different aspects of an application, and watch a demonstration in which application use cases lend themselves well to specific data services. If you're a developer building modern applications that require high performance, scale, and functional databases, and you're trying to determine which relational and non-relational data services to use, this tech talk is for you.
