Amazon Athena:直接在 S3 上進行分析

Amazon Athena 提供另外一種選擇,讓分析的便利性增加了許多:「Amazon Athena – Interactive SQL Queries for Data in Amazon S3」。

以往都需要開 server 起來分析,這個新的服務直接使用就好:

Athena is based on the Presto distributed SQL engine and can query data in many different formats including JSON, CSV, log files, text with custom delimiters, Apache Parquet, and Apache ORC.

果然是用 Presto 改出來的... XDDD

指定好各種資料來源之後直接下 SQL query 分析,然後依照分析的量來算錢... 而 FAQ 的地方也有提到可以透過 JDBC 接上去,這樣看起來跑報表的場合直接丟給他處理了:

Amazon Athena can be accessed via the AWS management console and a JDBC driver. You can programmatically run queries, add tables or partitions using the JDBC driver.

隔壁 Amazon Redshift 的立場變得很尷尬啊,Amazon Athena 不需要養機器而且又可以直接從 Amazon S3 拉資料,如果之後把 Presto 對 RDBMS 的部分再補上來的話就更棒了... (應該是下一階段的任務,把 RDS 補上)
