We are happy to announce that we have lowered the minimum provisioned throughput for Amazon DynamoDB.

The smallest provisioned throughput you can now request for a DynamoDB table is 1 write capacity unit and 1 read capacity unit. With this announcement you can:

  • Achieve fine grained I/O provisioning of tables
  • Create multiple tables and still use DynamoDB for free provided the total provisioned throughput across all the tables in your account is within the Free Tier usage limits

To learn more about Provisioned Throughput for Tables, you can view our documentation.

Getting started with Amazon DynamoDB is easy with our free tier of service. To learn more, visit the Amazon DynamoDB page.
