Question: Does DynamoDB support load balancing?
DynamoDB supports load balancing using Amazon Route 53 and an Application Load Balancer (ALB).
Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service. You can use Route 53 to route users to the nearest available region for their DynamoDB table, which can help to reduce latency and improve performance.
An Application Load Balancer (ALB) is a Layer 7 load balancer that can route HTTP/HTTPS traffic to one or more Amazon EC2 instances, containers, or IP addresses in one or more Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs). You can use an ALB to distribute incoming traffic to multiple DynamoDB tables, which can help to balance the load and improve performance.
Dynobase, a third-party tool, also supports load balancing for DynamoDB and provides a user-friendly interface.
