There are a few ways to migrate DynamoDB on the web if you go looking for it. One of the best sources is the AWS guide.
This guide can be used to
a. Migrate DynamoDB from one region to another.

Exporting DynamoDB data to AWS S3 using Data Pipeline.
Importing data from AWS S3 to DynamoDB again using the Data Pipeline.

Here are the templates that you can view to understand what TotalCloud does to perform the same task you would have otherwise done manually.

A common occurrence in Instance management is the risk of overutilization of disk space. Several factors can cause an increase in Diskutilization to go over 90%. For example, user-initiated heavy workloads, analytic queries, prolonged deadlocks, and lock waits, multiple concurrent transactions, long-running transactions, or other processes that utilize CPU resources...
