What is Amazon DocumentDB?

Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a fast, scalable, highly available, and fully managed document database service that supports MongoDB workloads.

Amazon DocumentDB is designed from the ground-up to give you the performance, scalability, and availability you need when operating mission-critical MongoDB workloads at scale. In Amazon DocumentDB, the storage and compute are decoupled, allowing each to scale independently, and you can increase the read capacity to millions of requests per second by adding up to 15 low latency read replicas in minutes, regardless of the size of your data.

Amazon DocumentDB is designed for 99.99% availability and replicates six copies of your data across three AWS Availability Zones (AZs). You can use AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) for free (for six months) to easily migrate their on-premises or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) MongoDB databases to Amazon DocumentDB with virtually no downtime.

Pretty scalable with good documentation and has an easy migration process

What is our primary use case?

When you're checking documents, for example, from ID cards or a driver's license, for example, it's personalized, yet there aren't different schemas. The solution helps with having a dynamic and perfect read in order to do document review.

Pros and Cons

  • "Migrations are easy using this product."
  • "There's a bit of a learning curve at the beginning."

We're not a partner or a reseller of the product. We're just a customer. We're using the latest version of the solution. I recommend the product. It's worked quite well for us. Overall, I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
