As usual with AWS provided policies, they can be a good starting point for learning a service, but we can certainly do better when it comes to putting them into production.

Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB) is Amazon Web Service’s commercial Ledger Database. Fundamentally a document storage database, it differentiates itself from other cloud-based document databases by integrating blockchain technology to offer an immutable transaction history and non-repudiation in the form of Merkle tree hash verification. It has other unique qualities, such as the ability to query it natively as if it were a relational database with the PartiQL language, the ability to stream its transaction records to other databases and services with Kinesis, and more.
