Hands-On Lab

In this lab, we will explore DynamoDB Local and Global Secondary Indexes, and their impact on performance and capacity unit usage.

An existing unindexed table is provided, and we will create a new table with Local and Global secondary indexes. Load the same dataset into our new table with a provided data loader, then use a test utility to observe the performance and capacity differences when performing read operations against tables with and without indexes.

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.
