Hello and welcome to this course, which will explain how to choose the most appropriate AWS database for your use case based on specific design requirements such as consistency, availability, scalability, and access patterns.

This course has been created for those that are looking to better understand the differences between the AWS database services and those who want to understand how to choose the right database service for a current or future project. 

By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of: 

  • Design requirements that might impact your choice in database

  • Use cases for each AWS relational database, and 

  • Use cases for each AWS noSQL database option

To get the most out of this course, you should have a fundamental understanding of the different databases on AWS. This course will not introduce each AWS database, instead, it will go through a process of how to select a database based on specific workload needs.
