In this lab, we are presented with a site that is struggling under load because the backing DynamoDB table has had its Read and Write provisioning drastically reduced to avoid incurring significant cost. To correct this, we will provision a DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) cluster and modify the Lambda functions in the site architecture to implement caching to return the site to a functional state.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
