You can use Amazon DynamoDB backup and restore to create on-demand and continuous backups of your DynamoDB tables and then restore from these backups. DynamoDB backup and restore is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

With on-demand backup and restore, you can create full backups of your DynamoDB tables for data archiving and retention, helping you meet your regulatory requirements. Point-in-time recovery (PITR) provides continuous backups of your DynamoDB table data to protect you against accidental writes or deletes. When you enable PITR, DynamoDB backs up your data automatically with per-second granularity, and you can restore your table to any single second in the preceding 35 days.

You can enable backup and restore for your DynamoDB table data with a single click in the AWS Management Console, a simple API call, or with the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). You can back up tables from a few megabytes to hundreds of terabytes of data, with no impact on the performance or availability of your production applications.
