Pros: Pretty much the reason why you use this is because it is a part of Amazon Web Services. It is used along side Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and Amazon S3. There is a free tier available to try it out or use for small loads. Transfers are also free within the AWS eco system.

Cons: Not really a con, more like a limitation - it provides eventual consistency. It makes it harder to write programs against. But that is what you typically see with large scale distributed databases. You sacrifice consistency for availability. Only you would know if this would work for you.

Pros: Amazon SimpleDB is like the rest of AWS, mostly cheap, full of quite useful features and in overall almost better than many of it's competitors.

Cons: Unfortunately like the rest of AWS, Amazon SimpleDB has slow customer service, long first-time setup and a charge during account validation.

Overall: This software somewhat helped me launch many products into the market even though I rarely used it directly.

Pros: Amazon has great features for shopping and a large selection to choose from! Have made quite a few purchases since I started using (and paying for Prime).

Cons: The software is like most others, our email is given out to companies that contract through Amazon.

Overall: Some free services have applied (shipping, etc.) Also the benefit of buyer beware, just because friends and family always think they are getting the best deal but there are times when things cost more.

It was very quick to get up and going with SimpleDB.

Pros: Gives you access to the capabilities of a familiar MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or PostgreSQL database engine.
Scripts, applications, and tools you already use with your existing databases can be used with Amazon RDS.
Automatically patches the AWS database software and backs up your data.

Cons: Deploying a highly available (HA), scalable web application can be complex and expensive. RDB can provide you with a relatively straightforward and inexpensive solution. To provide high availability, you simply select Multi-AZ (Multiple Availability Zones) for your AWS database during configuration

Comments: Amazon and the Amazon Web Services offering eliminate the need for expensive non scalable infrastructure. SimpleDB lets you move data into the cloud but still in such a way to be secure and available.
