Is DynamoDB SQL or NoSQL?
DynamoDB is a fast, scalable, and flexible cloud-based NoSQL database provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows developers to store and retrieve any amount of data and serve any level of request traffic. Unlike SQL databases, NoSQL databases like DynamoDB use a variety of different data models, including document, key-value, and wide-column to store and retrieve data.
Can DynamoDB store documents?
DynamoDB can store documents if they are in a format that can be expressed as key-value pairs. One such format is JSON, but the document should be flattened so it can be stored as individual fields in a table, with each field responding to a specific attribute.
When to use DynamoDB GUI?
DynamoDB GUI is an excellent fit for all sizes of applications, especially if your application needs predictable read and write performance. It is able to survive the biggest traffic spikes due to its automatic scaling capabilities. DynamoDB can be used for a simple key-value store, geographical store, relational data store, caching, workflow engines, and a lot more functions.
Can DynamoDB run on Mac OS?
DynamoDB can run on Mac OS using the DynamoDB local feature which is a version of DynamoDB to run on your computer. You can test and develop your application locally without any charges or internet access. To run it on Mac OS, you have to download the DynamoDB local JAE file and run it on your computer using the Java runtime.
