Amazon’s Newest Webservice – SimpleDB

Amazon has announced their newest webservice, SimpleDB. This service could fill in the gap with EC2 and S3 to offer a completely redundant and scalable solution for robust Internet applications. Amazon has only released a few details, but the public beta will be opening within the next few weeks.

Traditionally, this type of functionality has been accomplished with a clustered relational database that requires a sizable upfront investment, brings more complexity than is typically needed, and often requires a DBA to maintain and administer. In contrast, Amazon SimpleDB is easy to use and provides the core functionality of a database – real-time lookup and simple querying of structured data – without the operational complexity.
