Amazon Kinesis is a fully managed service for real-time processing of streaming data at massive scale. Amazon Kinesis can continuously capture and store terabytes of data per hour from hundreds of thousands of sources. Developers can write stream processing applications with the Kinesis Client Library that take action on real-time data such as web site click-streams, financial transaction data, social media feeds, IT logs, location-tracking events, and more. Amazon Kinesis-enabled applications can power real-time dashboards, generate alerts, drive real-time business decisions such as changing pricing and advertising strategies, or emit data to other big data services such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (Amazon EMR), and Amazon Redshift.

Amazon Kinesis is now available to all customers in US West (Northern California) Region. All customers can now use Amazon Kinesis from US West (Northern California) in addition to US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Sydney) Regions, further reducing the latencies associated with high throughput streaming data ingestion and processing.
