Question: Is DynamoDB stateless?
DynamoDB is a stateless database, meaning it does not maintain any information about previous requests or the current state of the application. Each request to DynamoDB is treated as an independent action and is processed based on the data provided in that request. This behaviour allows for horizontal scaling, as multiple servers can handle requests simultaneously without interfering with each other.
