Question: Why is DynamoDB easy to partition?
Partitions are a method of storing data in DynamoDB. All objects with the same partition key value are kept in the same partition in a DynamoDB table. These partitions are split over several servers, enabling the table to scale horizontally as data volume and request volume rise.
DynamoDB is easy to partition because it uses a partition key to distribute data across multiple partitions. When you create a DynamoDB table, you specify a partition (hash) key that DynamoDB will pass through its internal hash function to determine the shard (partition) to store your data on.
