Amazon DynamoDB transactions are now available in the Asia Pacific (Osaka-Local) Region. Transactions provide developers atomic, consistent, isolated, and durable (ACID) operations in DynamoDB so that they can maintain data correctness in applications more easily.

With transactions, developers can support workflows and business logic that require adding, updating, or deleting multiple items as a single, atomic operation. For example, a video game developer can ensure that players’ profiles are updated correctly when they exchange items in a game or make in-game purchases.

Support for transactions is available in all commercial AWS Regions where DynamoDB is offered. Pricing for transactions is based on the sizes of the items in the transactions. To get started with DynamoDB transactions, see Amazon DynamoDB Transactions.
