Amazon DynamoDB global tables is now available in the following AWS Regions: Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Africa (Cape Town), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich), Israel (Tel Aviv), Middle East (Bahrain), and Middle East (UAE). Customers can now create global tables with replicas in all AWS Regions.

Global tables provides multi-active, multi-Region data replication to deliver increased resiliency, improved business continuity, and fast local read and write performance for globally distributed applications. Global tables eliminates the undifferentiated heavy lifting of replicating data between Regions, enabling you to easily create architectures resilient to isolation of an entire Region without the need for database failover. Global tables is ideal for applications that require the highest availability and lowest latency in all regions, such as financial services and social media applications.

You can get started with DynamoDB global tables using the AWS Software Development Kit (SDK), AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or in the AWS Management Console. For more information on using DynamoDB global tables, see the DynamoDB developer guide.
