Amazon DynamoDB enhances its backup and restore capabilities by adding point-in-time recovery (PITR). PITR provides continuous backups of your DynamoDB table data and it helps protect against accidental writes or deletes. With PITR, you do not have to worry about creating, maintaining, or scheduling backups.
Instead, you enable PITR on your table, and you can recover that table from backup at any point in time from the moment you enable it up to a maximum of the 35 preceding days. You enable PITR with a single click from the AWS Management Console or a single API call. When enabled, PITR provides continuous backups of your DynamoDB table until you explicitly turn it off.
PITR is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), and South America (Sao Paulo) Regions starting today.
