Scheduling DynamoDB Backups with Lambda and CloudWatch
Let's assume you want to take a backup of one of your DynamoDB tables each day to an S3 bucket. A simple way to achieve this is to use an Amazon CloudWatch Events rule to trigger an AWS Lambda function daily. In this hands-on AWS lab, you will write a Lambda function in Python using the Boto3 library.
Setting this up requires configuring an IAM role, setting a CloudWatch rule, and creating a Lambda function.
