Analytics on AWS

Fastest way to get answers from all your data to all your users
AWS provides the broadest selection of analytics services that fit all your data analytics needs and enables organizations of all sizes and industries reinvent their business with data. From data movement, data storage, data lakes, big data analytics, machine learning, and anything in between, AWS offers purpose-built services that provide the best price-performance, scalability, and lowest cost.
Data stored at any scale
AWS analytics services are built to handle large amounts of data at scale and automate a lot of manual and time-consuming tasks. AWS-powered data lakes, supported by S3’s unmatched availability, can handle the scale, agility, and flexibility required to combine different types of data and analytics approaches to gain deeper insights, in ways that traditional data silos and data warehouses cannot.
Purpose-built for performance and cost
AWS is the fastest and most cost-effective place to store and analyze data. AWS analytics tools are purpose-built to help you quickly get insights from your data, using the most appropriate tool for the job, and are optimized to give you the best performance, scale, and cost for your needs.
Unified data access, security, and governance
AWS provides a comprehensive set of tools that goes beyond standard security functionality like encryption and access control to pro-active monitoring and unified management of security policies. Customers can centrally define and manage security, governance, and auditing policies to satisfy regulations specific to their industry and geography.
ML integration
AWS provides built-in integration of ML as part of its purpose-built analytics services. You can build, train, and deploy ML models quickly with Amazon SageMaker—a fully managed service that provides the tools required for every step of the ML development lifecycle in one integrated environment.

"We built a 120TB data lake in Amazon S3, with 1500 different schemes and use AWS analytics services like Glue, Redshift, and Athena extensively. We couldn’t get these insights from a bunch of siloed databases and warehouses - we needed an S3 scale data lake."
