Amazon SimpleDB

Posted by decipherinfosys on December 15, 2007

SimpleDB is Amazon’s latest Web Services offering. As is mentioned by Amazon on their site:

“This service works in close conjunction with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), collectively providing the ability to store, process and query data sets in the cloud”

This is yet another step towards parallel distributed data management for large data stores.  This web-service is based on the YOYODA model – You Own Your Own Data – Always. It will take some time to become familiar with the new terminology and the similarities as well as the differences between what SimpleDB offers versus what conventional RDBMS offer.  In the days to come, we will write more on this.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
