Amazon DynamoDB Backup and Restore provides the capability to easily create on-demand and continuous backups of your DynamoDB tables and restore from these backups, if needed. You can back up tables from a few megabytes to hundreds of terabytes of data, with no impact on the performance or availability of your production applications.

With on-demand backup and restore, you can create full backups of your DynamoDB table for data archiving and retention, helping you meet your corporate and governmental regulatory requirements. Point-in-time recovery (PITR) provides continuous backups of your DynamoDB table data, protecting you against accidental writes or deletes. When you enable PITR, you can recover that table from backup at any point in time from the moment you enable it to a maximum of the 35 preceding days.

DynamoDB backup and restore is now available in 16 Amazon Web Services Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Paris), South America (Sao Paulo), and China (Beijing) region operated by Sinnet.

You can enable backup and restore for your DynamoDB table data with a single click in the Amazon Management Console, a simple API call, or with the Amazon Command Line Interface (CLI). To learn more about DynamoDB backup and restore, see Backup and Restore.
