Amazon Kinesis

Collect, process, and analyze real-time video and data streams

Ingest, buffer, and process streaming data in real time to derive insights in minutes, not days.

Run your streaming applications on serverless infrastructure with a fully managed service.

Handle any amount of streaming data from thousands of sources and process it with low latencies.

How it works

Amazon Kinesis cost-effectively processes and analyzes streaming data at any scale as a fully managed service. With Kinesis, you can ingest real-time data, such as video, audio, application logs, website clickstreams, and IoT telemetry data, for machine learning (ML), analytics, and other applications.
