Amazon DynamoDB has reduced the price of global tables by eliminating associated charges for DynamoDB Streams. Previously, cross-region replication performed by global tables incurred charges for streams. Now, you are no longer billed for streams resources used by global tables for replicating changes from one replica table to all other replicas. You still are billed for any streams usage performed by your applications that read from a replica table’s stream.
Global tables provide a fully managed, multiregion, and multimaster database that provides fast, local, read and write performance for massively scaled global applications. Global tables replicate your DynamoDB tables automatically across your choice of AWS Regions. For more information, see the “Global Tables” section of the DynamoDB Developer Guide.
