AWS Glue is a fully managed extract, transform, and load (ETL) service that makes it easy for customers to prepare and load their data for analytics. AWS Glue is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to set up or manage. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, customers can create and run an ETL job. You simply point AWS Glue to your data stored on AWS, and AWS Glue discovers your data and stores associated metadata (e.g. table definition and schema) in the AWS Glue Data Catalog. Once cataloged, your data is immediately searchable, queryable, and available for ETL. With AWS Glue, data can be available for analytics in minutes.
AWS Glue is now available to customers in the US West (Oregon) and US East (Ohio) regions, as well as the US East (N. Virginia) region, and will expand to additional regions in the coming months.
