AWS CloudFormation Supports Amazon Kinesis Analytics Applications

You can now provision and manage resources for Amazon Kinesis Analytics applications using AWS CloudFormation.  Kinesis Analytics is the easiest way to process streaming data in real time with standard SQL, without having to learn new programming languages or processing frameworks. Kinesis Analytics enables you to query streaming data or build entire streaming applications using SQL. Using the service, you gain actionable insights and can respond to your business and customer needs promptly.

Customers can create CloudFormation templates that easily create or update Kinesis Analytics applications. Typically, a template is used as a way to manage code across different environments, or to prototype a new streaming data solution quickly.

We have created two sample templates using past AWS Big Data Blog posts that referenced Kinesis Analytics.

For more information about the new feature, see the AWS Cloudformation User Guide.
