Amazon DynamoDB endpoints and quotas - AWS General Reference

Amazon DynamoDB endpoints and quotas

The following are the service endpoints and service quotas for this service. To connect programmatically to an AWS service, you use an endpoint. In addition to the standard AWS endpoints, some AWS services offer FIPS endpoints in selected Regions. For more information, see AWS service endpoints. Service quotas, also referred to as limits, are the maximum number of service resources or operations for your AWS account. For more information, see AWS service quotas.

For more information about this topic specific to DynamoDB, see Quotas in Amazon DynamoDB.
