Question: Is DynamoDB similar to MongoDB?
Yes, both databases are NoSQL in nature. However, the two have significant differences.
DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS), while MongoDB is a popular open-source NoSQL database.
DynamoDB is designed to be highly scalable and handle high write and read throughput, while MongoDB is more flexible regarding data modelling and querying.
Finally, DynamoDB has built-in support for global secondary indexes and automatic sharding, while MongoDB requires additional configuration to achieve similar functionality.
