We are happy to announce three new improvements to Amazon DynamoDB.

  • Our BatchGetItem API will now support strongly consistent reads. This allows customers to take advantage of the performance benefits of our BatchGetItem API while still ensuring that they are retrieving the most up-to-date information from their DynamoDB table.
  • Customers can now update the provisioned capacity of up to 10 tables simultaneously.
  • We have removed the limit on the minimum percentage change when updating your DynamoDB table's provisioned capacity.

To take advantage of the latest improvements to DynamoDB, make sure you have the latest SDK libraries, which you can download at
