Now in preview, AWS Glue Elastic Views is a new capability of AWS Glue that makes it easy to build materialized views that combine and replicate data across multiple data stores without you having to write custom code. With AWS Glue Elastic Views, you can use familiar Structured Query Language (SQL) to quickly create a virtual table—a materialized view—from multiple different source data stores. AWS Glue Elastic Views copies data from each source data store and creates a replica in a target data store. AWS Glue Elastic Views continuously monitors for changes to data in your source data stores, and provides updates to the materialized views in your target data stores automatically, ensuring data accessed through the materialized view is always up-to-date.
AWS Glue Elastic Views supports many AWS databases and data stores, including Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service, with support for Amazon Relational Database Service, Amazon Aurora, and others to follow. AWS Glue Elastic Views is serverless and scales capacity up or down automatically based on demand, so there’s no infrastructure to manage.
AWS Glue Elastic Views is in preview today and available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Europe (Ireland). To request access to the preview, register here.
