That is pretty much exactly what we have been waiting for. AWS is not very scalable if we have to keep manually tweaking stuff manually all the time, that's why we have autoscaling.
If I was Amazon I would have offered Sebastian a job by now and told him to make scaling in DynamoDB seamless.

We've been using this in production for many months, and have recently switched to an alternative as detailed in this post: http://devblog.getinvisiblehand.com/autoscaling_dynamodb for one main reason: Dynamic DynamoDB uses a single Cloudwatch metric to determine currently consumed throughput, and Cloudwatch often returns values that are incorrect, causing tables to scale down and then be throttled. The alternative samples data over x number of cloudwatch metrics, which gives better resilience to incorrect cloudwatch data.
