Leverage the Cloud for what it does best. Dont bring old DC habits.2. Scale up for better performance.3. Use RDS for complex, real-time data.4. Use Read Replicas to augment write heavy databases. They are awesome.5. Leverage existing SQL knowledge and experience.6. Use copies of your database for testing new code. Its trivial and saves time.7. Scale horizontally with sharding. Plan for it before you need it. 18. SQL or NoSQL? 19. Relational Or Non-Relational?Factors Relational (RDS) NoSQL (DynamoDB) Existing database apps New Web scale applicationsApplication type Business process-centric apps Large # of small writes and readsApplication Relational data models, transactions Simple data models, transactionscharacteristics Complex queries, joins and updates Range queries, simple updatesScaling Application or DBA architected Seamless, on-demand scaling Performance developer architected Performance AutomaticQoS Reliability and availability Reliability and availabilitySkillset SQL + Programming languages Web style programmingPossible to use both SQL and NoSQL models in one application 20.
