Amazon DynamoDB vs Redis: What are the differences?
What is Amazon DynamoDB? Fully managed NoSQL database service. All data items are stored on Solid State Drives (SSDs), and are replicated across 3 Availability Zones for high availability and durability. With DynamoDB, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available distributed database cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
What is Redis? An in-memory database that persists on disk. Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
Amazon DynamoDB and Redis are primarily classified as "NoSQL Database as a Service" and "In-Memory Databases" tools respectively.
"Predictable performance and cost" is the primary reason why developers consider Amazon DynamoDB over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
Redis is an open source tool with 37.1K GitHub stars and 14.3K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.
