You can now provision Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) clusters using AWS CloudFormation, a service that allows you to easily provision, manage and update a collection of related AWS resources. Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) is a fully managed, highly available, in-memory cache for DynamoDB that delivers up to a 10x performance improvement – from milliseconds to microseconds – even at millions of requests per second.

Using CloudFormation templates, you can now create, update and delete DAX clusters, parameter groups, and subnet groups. There is no additional charge for AWS CloudFormation, beyond what you pay for DAX, DynamoDB and other AWS resources. For more information about AWS CloudFormation support, visit the DAX CloudFormation Template Reference documentation.

DAX is currently available in US East (N. Virginia), EU (Ireland), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and US West (N. California).
