Today, DAX announced the SDKs for Python and .NET, support for new T2 instances in all supported regions. T2 instances provide a baseline level of CPU performance and can be more cost-effective for test and development workloads or production applications that require smaller caches. DAX is now general availability in the Asia Pacific (Singapore) and Asia Pacific (Sydney) Regions. DAX is already available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), and South America (São Paulo) Regions.

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. DAX adds in-memory acceleration to your DynamoDB tables, without requiring you to manage cache invalidation, data population, or cluster management. Now you can simply focus on building great applications for your customers without worrying about performance at scale. 

Using DAX is easy and requires no modification to your application logic, because DAX is compatible with existing DynamoDB API calls. You can enable DAX with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or by using the AWS SDK. To learn more about using DAX with DynamoDB, see the DAX home page and the DAX documentation.
