      Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL

      We use Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL because RDS and Amazon DynamoDB are two distinct database systems. DynamoDB is NoSQL DB whereas RDS is a relational database on the cloud. The pricing will mainly differ in the type of application you are using and your requirements. For some applications, both DynamoDB and RDS, can serve well, for some it might not. I do not think DynamoDB is cheaper. Right now we are helping Companies in Silicon Valley and in Southern California go SERVERLESS - drastically lowering costs if you are interested in hearing how we go about it.

      I could spin up an Amazon EC2 instance and install PostgreSQL myself, review latest configuration best practices, sort Amazon EBS storage for data, set up a snapshot process etc.

      Alternatively I could use Amazon RDS, Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL or Heroku Postgres and have most of that work handled for me, by a team of world experts...
