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.

Amazon Kinesis team has announced the addition of a server-side record timestamp. Each record now has a new attribute, “ApproximateArrivalTimestamp", which captures the approximate time of record insertion in an Amazon Kinesis stream. Customers can use this parameter to measure the age of a record read from a Kinesis stream, or to group records over time windows.
