Amazon QuickSight is excited to announce the enhancement of SPICE ingestion performance. Given SPICE's support for datasets as large as 1TB or 1 billion rows, previously the ingestion process for large datasets could extend over several hours. The enhancement in ingestion performance leverages the parallel ingestion mechanism to significantly decrease the data refresh time for such large datasets. Users can anticipate a noticeable improvement, with an overall reduction in ingestion time of up to 75%, or 4x improvement in performance, for datasets that previously took more than three hours. Datasets utilizing Customer Managed Key will experience even greater performance enhancements. No alterations to the customer interface are required; the benefits of this feature will be seamlessly activated on the backend upon its launch.

The new enhenced ingestion performance is now available in Amazon QuickSight Standard and Enterprise Editions in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Canada, Sao Paulo, Europe (Frankfurt, Stockholm, Paris, Ireland and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo), and the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region.
