Amazon Athena vs Amazon DynamoDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon Athena as "Query S3 Using SQL". Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze data in Amazon S3 using standard SQL. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to manage, and you pay only for the queries that you run. On the other hand, Amazon DynamoDB is detailed as "Fully managed NoSQL database service". All data items are stored on Solid State Drives (SSDs), and are replicated across 3 Availability Zones for high availability and durability. With DynamoDB, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available distributed database cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
Amazon Athena can be classified as a tool in the "Big Data Tools" category, while Amazon DynamoDB is grouped under "NoSQL Database as a Service".
"Use SQL to analyze CSV files" is the top reason why over 9 developers like Amazon Athena, while over 53 developers mention "Predictable performance and cost" as the leading cause for choosing Amazon DynamoDB.
According to the StackShare community, Amazon DynamoDB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 444 company stacks & 187 developers stacks; compared to Amazon Athena, which is listed in 50 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.
