Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose today announced support for custom Amazon S3 prefixes allowing customers more flexibility when configuring S3 paths for data delivery. This new capability enables customers to simplify and accelerate ETL (Extract Transform Load) workflows and to enable data partitions for faster query performance.

Now customers can customize the Amazon S3 prefix using the Apache Hive format and timestamp formats (supported by the Java DateTimeFormatter class).
