Fully-managed extract, transform, and load (ETL) service AWS Glue is another offering that deals with big data and data processing. Users can employ the service to prepare and load their data stored on the AWS cloud for analytics, and create and run an ETL job within the AWS Management Console. AWS Glue works by discovering data and storing the associated metadata in the AWS Glue Data Catalog. This data is then immediately searchable, queryable, and available for ETL jobs.
Customers using the serverless AWS Glue service do not have to buy or manage any infrastructure, and customers are charged by the amount of compute resources consumed while running ETL jobs. The service became available in August.
