We are excited to announce that AWS CloudFormation now supports Amazon DynamoDB as well as Amazon CloudFront dynamic content. With AWS CloudFormation, you can easily provision and update a set of related AWS resources in an orderly and predictable fashion. AWS CloudFormation templates are JSON-formatted text files that can be version controlled alongside your application source.
Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. You can now create and update Amazon DynamoDB tables using CloudFormation templates. As the load of your application changes, you can easily adjust your Amazon DynamoDB request capacity by modifying your CloudFormation template and updating your running stacks. To learn more about how to create and manage Amazon DynamoDB tables using CloudFormation, visit the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery service that distributes content with low latency and high data transfer speeds. Using CloudFormation templates, you can now create and manage Amazon CloudFront distributions for your entire web application, including dynamic, static, and streaming content. CloudFormation also allows you to easily update your distributions as you add more content or origins to your application. To learn more about how to create and manage Amazon CloudFront distributions using CloudFormation, visit the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
