 Brief description Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed proprietary NoSQL database service that supports key-value and document data structures[2] and is offered by Amazon.com as part of the Amazon Web Services portfolio PostgreSQL, often simply Postgres, is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) with an emphasis on extensibility and standards compliance. It can handle workloads ranging from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications (or for data warehousing) with many concurrent users; on macOS Server, PostgreSQL is the default database and it is also available for Microsoft Windows and Linux (supplied in most distributions). PostgreSQL is ACID-compliant and transactional. PostgreSQL has updatable views and materialized views, triggers, foreign keys; supports functions and stored procedures, and other expandability. PostgreSQL is developed by the PostgreSQL Global Development Group, a diverse group of many companies and individual contributors.It is free and open-source, released under the terms of the PostgreSQL License, a permissive software license.
