Amazon DynamoDB enables you to restore your data to a new DynamoDB table by using a point-in-time or on-demand backup. Now, you can configure table settings when you restore a table from your DynamoDB backups. Specifically, you can exclude some or all of the local and global secondary indexes from being created with the restored table. You also can change the billing mode and provisioned capacity settings. Previously, you could only restore all table data from your backups, and what was restored included all local and global secondary indexes and provisioned capacity settings. 

You can restore tables faster and with greater cost-efficiency when you choose to exclude some or all secondary indexes from being created with the restored tables. You can restore tables from a few megabytes to hundreds of terabytes of data with no impact on the performance or availability of your production applications. You can restore for your DynamoDB table data with a single click in the AWS Management Console, a simple API call, or the AWS Command Line Interface.
