[AWS] AWS Glue

AWS Glue is a serverless data integration service, which provides fully managed extract, transform, and load (ETL) functionality.


You simply point AWS Glue to your data stored on AWS, and AWS Glue discovers your data and stores the associated metadata (e.g. table definition and schema) in the AWS Glue Data Catalog. Once cataloged, your data is immediately searchable, queryable, and available for ETL.
