Amazon DynamoDB Pricing Features , Cost , Calculator

Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed, serverless, key-value NoSQL database designed to run high-performance applications at any scale.

Developers can use DynamoDB to build modern, serverless applications that can start small and scale globally to support petabytes of data and tens of millions of read and write requests per second. DynamoDB is designed to run high-performance, internet-scale applications that would overburden traditional relational databases.

It has the following features

Amazon DynamoDB Provisioned mode Pricing

Amazon dynamodb streams pricing

DynamoDB charges for reading data from DynamoDB Streams in read request units. Each GetRecords API call is billed as a streams read request unit and returns up to 1 MB of data from DynamoDB Streams. Streams read request units are unique from read requests on your DynamoDB table. You are not charged for GetRecords API calls invoked by AWS Lambda as part of DynamoDB triggers. You also are not charged for GetRecords API calls invoked by DynamoDB global tables.

  • Every month, the first 2,500,000 DynamoDB Streams read request units are free
  • $0.02 per 100,000 DynamoDB Streams read request units thereafter

Amazon dynamodb free tier

The following DynamoDB benefits are included as part of the AWS Free Tier. Each benefit is calculated monthly on a per-Region, per-payer account basis.

On-Demand Mode

  • 25 GB of data storage for tables using the DynamoDB Standard table class
  • 2.5 million stream read requests from DynamoDB Streams
  • 1 GB of data transfer out, aggregated across AWS services

Provisioned Mode

  • 25 WCUs and 25 RCUs of provisioned capacity for tables using the DynamoDB Standard table class
  • 25 GB of data storage for tables using the DynamoDB Standard table class
  • 25 rWCUs for global tables using the DynamoDB Standard table class deployed in two AWS Regions
  • 2.5 million stream read requests from DynamoDB Streams
  • 1 GB of data transfer out (15 GB for your first 12 months), aggregated across AWS services

Amazon dynamodb Pricing, cost calculator

This example demonstrates how DynamoDB charges using on-demand capacity mode.

Assume you create a new DynamoDB Standard table in the US East (N. Virginia) Region. For simplicity, assume that each time a user interacts with your application, 1 write of 1 KB and 1 strongly consistent read of 1 KB are performed. Your application will have 100,000 reads and 100,000 writes during first 5 days of month and 20,000 reads, 20,000 writes for remaining days of the month.

Timeframe (Day of Month)Total WritesTotal Reads
1–5500,000 writes (100,000 writes x 5 days)500,000 reads (100,000 reads x 5 days)
6-30500,000 writes (20,000 writes x 25 days)500,000 reads (20,000 reads x 25 days)
