Amazon DynamoDB


Amazon DynamoDB is a fully administered NoSQL database service that provides fast, reliable performance, allowing users to create database tables that can store and access any amount of data to serve any level of traffic without downtime or performance degradation. AutoMate allows developers to automate a variety of DynamoDB operations without the need to write code. Since DynamoDB is a service based on throughput, developers can also create tasks to monitor usage and storage capacity.

IMPORTANT: AutoMate's DynamoDB activities are performed using Amazon's DynamoDB engine, therefore, launching and managing DynamoDB through AutoMate requires a valid Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
