Extract DynamoDB data using Amazon S3

Why extract through S3?

Using the Kleene Dynamo DB connector can incur high fees, to avoid these fees, it is recommended to us this method.


  1. Export the table into an S3 bucket by following this documentation
  2. Set up the S3 connector in the Kleene app, and point it to the S3 bucket where the exported data is. Use the "DYNAMODB EXPORT" file type.

Things to note:

  • The DynamoDB➝S3 export is always a full dump
  • DynamoDB exports costs 0.10$/GB
  • Currently this method is only useful for an initial/one-time load
