Amazon DynamoDB is a managed NoSQL database with predictable and consistent performance that cover users from difficulties of manual setup. In the time of traffic, it can scale up automatically and improves the performance with reduced cost. The data objects can be stored in inconsistent schemas, which is why it can handle less structured data more efficiently.
It can also create backup of the data on the cloud for security and safety purposes. DynamoDB allows to set a timestamp for expired data in the table so once it expires, the data is marked to expire. This helps to keep in track of expired data and delete it automatically avoiding manual deletion. The most important feature is to have specific access control that allows table owners to set high level of control over the data in the table.
Amazon DynamoDB can be accessed using the AWS Management Console, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), or the DynamoDB API. In this blog, we will see how an item in Amazon DynamoDB can be accessed using AWS CLI and AWS SDK for Python (Boto3).
