AWS Databases: New Auto Scaling for Amazon DynamoDB

Amazon DynamoDB is a very popular NoSQL database service. Among AWS databases, the Flux7 AWS consultants like DynamoDB for its fast, reliable performance, especially for real time apps where we need faster access of data e.g. commerce, big data analytics, and IoT applications. Moreover, as a managed service, AWS takes care of the administrative burden (e.g. hardware provisioning, setup and configuration, replication, software patching, etc.) for you. While this database is well-loved, one feature that has been in high-demand--and we are happy to say was just released by AWS--is Auto Scaling for DynamoDB. We are really excited to see AWS deliver Auto Scaling to DynamoDB customers as it will make administration and managing capacity of data even easier, will help maximize availability for applications, all of which will positively impact cost savings.

As a result, AWS released a new model called the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) which makes it easier for customers to deploy their serverless applications using AWS CloudFormation. With this announcement, there are now two serverless frameworks for building serverless architectures -- deploying serverless applications using AWS CloudFormation and using the AWS SAM. However, the new AWS SAM uses CloudFormation natively to deploy, which is a definite plus for AWS users.
