You can use Amazon DynamoDB backup and restore to create on-demand and continuous backups of your DynamoDB tables—and then restore from those backups. You also can restore DynamoDB table backups as new tables in other AWS Regions. Starting today, you can restore table backups as new tables in the Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Europe (Milan), and Middle East (Bahrain) Regions. 

This feature can help you meet your cross-Region compliance and regulatory requirements, and to develop a disaster recovery and business continuity plan. 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 your DynamoDB table data across AWS Regions in the AWS Management Console, the DynamoDB API, or the AWS Command Line Interface. You pay only for the data you transfer out of the source Region and for restoring backups as new tables in destination Regions.
