Create a Dynamo Table

AWS Dynamo Database users can create Dynamo Table collections. You can use Macrometa as a datastore and achieve global data distribution within milliseconds.

To switch to GDN, you must change the connection URL, AccessKey, and SecretKey. AWS Dynamo DB SDK and CLI are compatible. Geo-distribution is global by default.
