Amazon Kinesis Data Streams for Amazon DynamoDB is now available in 11 additional AWS Regions around the world. With Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, you can capture item-level changes in your DynamoDB tables as a Kinesis data stream with a single click in the DynamoDB console, or by using the AWS API, CLI or CloudFormation templates.

You can use this capability to build advanced streaming applications with Amazon Kinesis services. For example, Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics reduces the complexity of building, managing, and integrating with Apache Flink, and provides built-in functions to filter, aggregate, and transform streaming data for advanced analytics. You also can use Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose and take advantage of managed streaming delivery of DynamoDB table data to other AWS services such as Amazon OpenSearch Service, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon S3. You don’t have to write or maintain complex code to load and synchronize your data into these services. 

With this launch, Amazon Kinesis Data Streams for DynamoDB is available in the Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich), Middle East (Bahrain), Middle East (UAE) Regions, AWS GovCloud (US-East), and AWS GovCloud (US-West).
