Auto Scaling in Amazon DynamoDB – 2017 #AWS Online Tech Talks Video
Recently, DynamoDB announced Auto Scaling, to help automate capacity management for tables and global secondary indexes. Previously, customers had to manually provision read and write capacity based on anticipated application demands. This could result in underprovisioning or overprovisioning capacity. Underprovisioning could slow down application performance, and overprovisioning could result in underutilized resources and higher costs. With DynamoDB Auto Scaling, you simply set your desired throughput utilization target (within your desired minimum and maximum limits), and auto scaling takes care of the rest. In this webinar, we will share how Auto Scaling works in DynamoDB, show how you can enable Auto Scaling with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console and manage programmatically using the AWS Command Line Interface and the AWS Software Development Kits.
