AWS Glue Studio is now available in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) Region. AWS Glue Studio is a visual interface for AWS Glue that makes it easy for extract-transform-and-load (ETL) developers to author, run, and monitor AWS Glue ETL jobs. You can now use a simple visual interface to compose jobs that move and transform data and run them on AWS Glue. You can then use AWS Glue Studio’s job run dashboard to monitor ETL execution and ensure that your jobs are operating as intended.

AWS Glue Studio makes ETL accessible to the many users who are new to Apache Spark programming and to users who are accustomed to ETL tools with boxes-and-arrows interfaces. Without writing code, users of all experience levels can now take advantage of big data processing on AWS Glue’s serverless Apache Spark-based ETL platform. They can also use the AWS Glue Studio job monitoring dashboard to get a global view of their ETL execution and resource usage.
