Amazon SimpleDB: LITE
Amazon's SimpleDB is a highly scalable, simple-to-use, and inexpensive database in the cloud from Amazon Web Services. But in order to use SimpleDB, you really have to change your mindset. This isn't a traditional relational database; in fact it's not relational at all. For developers who have experience working with relational databases, this may lead to misconceptions as to how SimpleDB works. This focused book is all about Amazon SimpleDB, quickly understanding its power and value, and how to get up and running fast.
