If it is a real-time system, very specific to the domain, it is a great solution. If it is embedded, has huge data, the frequency is quite high to store that data, and the device is in a remote area or there is no connectivity, then this solution is perfect. However, if the device is connected through the internet, then it's definitely not a good solution. That is, if it is connected to the internet and proper connections are there, then this solution will not be not feasible. If I were to rate this solution, I would rate it at six on a scale from one to ten.

I would recommend anyone looking to implement any software to understand the needs of their business and do a purpose analysis to determine if the software fits their use case. No matter how good a solution can be if it does not fit the purpose of the business it will not be helpful. I rate Amazon DynamoDB an eight out of ten.

I would recommend this solution based on the use case. It is pretty straightforward, and we haven't had any major issues. It is just plug-and-play. There is nothing else that you need to do. I would rate Amazon DynamoDB an eight out of ten.

We are using the public cloud deployment model. I would rate the solution eight out of ten. I'm quite satisfied with the solution. Querying could always be better, but it's a typical complaint.
