 DynamoDB, RDS, and RedShift these three are the databases of the executives' administrations offered by Amazon. These can be differentiated as –

Amazon DynamoDB is the NoSQL database administration which manages the unstructured information. DynamoDB offers a significant level of adaptability with quicker and unavoidable execution.

Amazon RDS is the database the board administrator for the social databases which oversees overhauling, fixing, fixing, and sponsorship up data of the database without your intercession. RDS is exclusively a database for the executives' administration for the structure information.

Amazon RedShift is very surprising from RDS and DynamoDB. RedShift is an information distribution centre item that is utilized in information examination.
