With Amazon Kinesis Data Streams for Amazon DynamoDB, you can capture item-level changes in your DynamoDB tables as a Kinesis data stream. You can enable streaming to a Kinesis data stream on your table with a single click in the DynamoDB console, or via the Amazon API or Amazon CLI.  

This new capability enables you 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 Amazon Web Services services such as Amazon Elasticsearch, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon S3. You don’t have to write or maintain complex code to load and synchronize your data into these services. 

This feature is now available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more about this feature and region pricing, see Amazon DynamoDB pricing
