Amazon DynamoDB Standard Infrequent Access (DynamoDB Standard-IA) table class is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. The DynamoDB Standard-IA table class is ideal for use cases that require long-term storage of data that is infrequently accessed, such as application logs, medical records, and financial transactions.
Now, you can optimize the costs of your DynamoDB workloads based on your tables’ storage requirements and data access patterns. The new DynamoDB Standard-IA table class offers 60 percent lower storage costs than the existing DynamoDB Standard tables, making it the most cost-effective option for tables with storage as the dominant table cost. The existing DynamoDB Standard table class offers 20 percent lower throughput costs than the DynamoDB Standard-IA table class. DynamoDB Standard remains your default table class and the most cost-effective option for the wider variety of tables that store frequently accessed data with throughput as the dominant table cost. You can switch between DynamoDB Standard and DynamoDB Standard-IA table classes with no impact on table performance, durability, or availability and without changing your application code. For more information about using DynamoDB Standard-IA, see Table Classes in the DynamoDB Developer Guide.
