AWS Glue Schema Registry is now available in both AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. AWS GovCloud (US) Regions are designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud for customers who have U.S. federal, state, and local government compliance requirements.

AWS Glue Schema Registry, a serverless feature of AWS Glue, enables you to validate and control the evolution of streaming data using schemas registered in Apache Avro and JSON Schema data formats, at no additional charge. Schemas define the structure and format of data records, also known as events, produced by applications. When data-producing applications add or remove fields from a schema, data quality may be compromised and downstream applications may be impacted. Using Glue Schema Registry, you can reduce downstream application failures and eliminate defensive coding as schemas used for data production are validated against schemas within a central registry, allowing you to centrally control data quality.

Through Apache-licensed serializers and deserializers, Glue Schema Registry integrates with Java applications developed for Apache Kafka/Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK), Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, Apache Flink/Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink, and AWS Lambda.
