Athena Summary

Athena logo —
  • Athena is an interactive query service that analyses data using standard SQL.
  • Can work with both structured and unstructured data and can work directly with data stored in S3.
  • Serverless — nothing to provision, pay per query
  • No need for complex ETL
  • Out of the box integration with AWS Glue
  • Can be used for things like querying log files or generating reports based on data stored in S3.
