Question: How is data stored in DynamoDB?
DynamoDB stores its data in partitions. A partition is a space allocated for a table running on SSDs (Solid State Drives) and automatically replicates amongst multiple AWS availability zones. It is important to note that users do not have to worry about managing these partitions. The database splits the data into partitions according to the partition key defined.
