Amazon DynamoDB increases default service quotas to simplify use of large numbers of tables. DynamoDB increased the default quota for the number of DynamoDB tables you can create and manage per Amazon Web Services account and Amazon Web Services Region from 256 to 2,500 tables. DynamoDB also increased the number of table management operations you can perform concurrently from 50 to 500. You can now perform a larger number of create, delete, and update table operations in parallel per account and per Region.

With the new higher default service quotas, you can more easily create and manage hundreds of dedicated tables to track costs separately, and isolate data that requires different retention policies and different encryption keys. You also can host tables for different development, test, and production environments in a single account to share resources more easily.

These new quotas are now effective in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Start taking advantage of these quotas by using the DynamoDB console, the Amazon Command Line Interface or Amazon APIs. For more information on DynamoDB quotas, see the DynamoDB Developer Guide.
