How to Get Started



DynamoDB to Amazon Redshift Load Component

The DynamoDB Load component in Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift allows you to load data into an existing Redshift table from objects stored in Amazon DynamoDB.

This is similar to the S3 Load component, and also uses the Redshift COPY command. However, many of the COPY options are not applicable for a DynamoDB COPY, so this component is simpler to set up.
