Since a few days, Amazon provides a native way to enable Auto Scaling for DynamoDB tables! Luckily the settings can be configured using CloudFormation templates, and so I wrote a plugin for serverless to easily configure Auto Scaling without having to write the whole CloudFormation configuration.
plugins: - serverless-dynamodb-autoscaling custom: capacities: - table: CustomTable # DynamoDB resource name read: minimum: 5 # Minimum read capacity maximum: 1000 # Maximum read capacity usage: 0.75 # Usage percentage write: minimum: 40 maximum: 200 usage: 0.5
After your next deployment, Amazon will configure native Auto Scaling for your DynamoDB table. Before the native support from Amazon, you had to handle Auto Scaling on your own, with a custom AWS Lambda function for example. But those times a finally over!

Together with the recently introduced Go support for AWS Lambda, this is just awesome!1016 words, posted on February 20
