Companies choose databases with both core business objectives and technical objectives in mind. Often they select a database that seems to be the best choice at first glance, as well as the path of least resistance, and then are subsequently surprised by cost overruns and technology limitations that quickly hinder productivity and put the business at risk.
This seems to be the case with many enterprises that chose Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) DynamoDB. DynamoDB is a solid product that appears to be a sound choice for companies that already leverage the AWS platform. However, it’s not a one-size-fits-all-for-all-uses product, and there are areas of concern that could clearly indicate you’ve outgrown this technology. Unfortunately, you can’t change your business requirements to fit the limitations of the technology, and the technology is unlikely to change to meet your expanding needs.
As a database vendor, I always strive for truth and transparency as it always serves my company and my prospects and customers best. In initiating this whitepaper, “5 Signs You’ve Outgrown DynamoDB”, we at Aerospike wanted to delve into aspects of this product as a means to shed some light on what might be perceived as murky areas while still retaining an unbiased viewpoint. So elements of costing as well as benchmark-based testing has been performed. I hope you find it informative and insightful to read, and, of course, feel free to reach out to us with questions.
