Starting today, you can use Amazon Athena to query data in Google Cloud Storage. With Athena’s data source connectors, you can run SQL queries on data stored in relational, non-relational, object, and custom data sources without the need to move data to S3 or learn a new query dialect. Google Cloud Storage is a managed service designed to store data in buckets, similar to Amazon S3.

You can now use Athena’s connector for Google Cloud Storage to query data stored in Parquet and comma-separated value (CSV) formats. This makes it simple to leverage Google Cloud Storage data for use cases such as interactive analysis and visualization in your preferred business intelligence application. To get started, use the Athena console to create a secure connection to Google Cloud Storage, register your data with the AWS Glue Data Catalog, and then run your queries.
