How does Table Store differ from conventional RDBMSs?

Last Updated: Apr 11, 2018

Table Store is a 2D, NoSQL data storage table system that uses rows and columns. Table Store features attribute columns that can be dynamically added or reduced without requiring a strict schema during table creation.

Although Table Store does not support the rich functions of traditional RDBMS (such as views, indexes, transactions, and innumerous SQL statements), it provides better scalability, easy-to-use functions, and supports extremely large volumes of data (hundreds of TB) in addition to concurrent queries at 100,000 QPS for each table.

Table Store also offers a uniform HTTP RESTful API for easier programming, and you only pay according your actual usage of the Table Store resources (storage and read/write throughput) which means it has no hidden costs.
