Amazon DynamoDB global tables now support AWS CloudFormation, which means you can create global tables and manage their settings with CloudFormation templates. Global tables build upon the global footprint of DynamoDB to deliver a fully managed, multi-Region, multi-active database. You can use global tables to replicate table updates automatically across the AWS Regions you select, and you can set up global tables at any time with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or by using the AWS SDK.

See Amazon DynamoDB pricing for pricing details and a full list of supported AWS Regions. For more information about global tables, see Global Tables: Multi-Region Replication with DynamoDB, and see What Is AWS CloudFormation? for more information about working with CloudFormation.
