Question: Can DynamoDB be replicated?
Yes, DynamoDB can be replicated. DynamoDB supports multiple types of replication, including:
- Global Tables: Allows you to replicate your DynamoDB table across multiple regions, providing fast, local access to your data with low latency and high throughput.
- On-Demand Backup and Restore: Allows you to create full backups of your DynamoDB table anytime and restore to a new table when needed.
- Point-in-Time Recovery (PITR): This allows you to recover your table to any point within the last 35 days.
- Streams: Allows you to capture data modification events in a DynamoDB table and stream them to other services, such as Lambda or Kinesis, for real-time processing and analytics.
All of the above options may have an additional cost, and replication options may vary based on the use case and the size of your data.
