AWS Glue launches G.025X, a new quarter DPU worker type for streaming extract, transform, and load (ETL) jobs. This smaller worker type is suitable to process low volume and sporadic data streams.

AWS Glue streaming ETL jobs continuously consume data from streaming sources, clean and transform the data in-flight, and make it available for analysis in seconds. Sometimes, these streams have sporadic and low data volumes. Existing worker types may be excessive to process these data streams. With this new worker type, customers can process low data volume streams at one-fourth of the cost. Refer to the documentation for more details.

This feature is available in the same AWS Regions as AWS Glue.
