Amazon Simple Database Service (SimpleDB), also known as Key Value Data Store, is a highly available and flexible non-relational database that enables developers to request and store data, with database management minimal data and administrative liability.
SimpleDB provides a URL endpoint to secure encrypted messages between an application and a domain. In conjunction with AWS Identity and Access Management, you can create permissions for groups and users on specific SimpleDB domains. Amazon SimpleDB works with other Amazon services to give developers the ability to store their data in Amazon Simple Queue Service and run their applications in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud.
Because Amazon SimpleDB provides scaling, customers pay only for resources used and not for compute resources when not actively in use.
