Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a database service that is purpose-built for JSON data management at scale, fully managed and integrated with Amazon Web Services, and enterprise-ready with high durability.

Today, Amazon DocumentDB added support for the Decimal128 data type. Decimal128 is a BSON data type and provides 128 bits of decimal representation supporting 34 decimal digits of precision and an exponent range of -6143 to +6144.

The Decimal128 data type is supported in all regions where Amazon DocumentDB is available including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) region, operated by NWCD. To learn more, visit our documentation here.
