When you create a DynamoDB global table, it consists of multiple replica tables (one per AWS Region) that DynamoDB treats as a single unit. Every replica has the same table name and the same primary key schema. When an application writes data to a replica table in one AWS region, DynamoDB propagates the write to the other replica tables in the other AWS regions automatically.
