AWS Glue is a cost-effective and fully managed ETL (extract, transform and load) service that is simple and flexible. With this ETL service it’s easier for your customers to prepare and load their data which is for analytics. With just a few clicks you can create and run an ETL job in the AWS Management Console. How this is done is that you just point AWS Glue to the data that you have already stored on AWS.
The next thing that happens is that the AWS Glue will discover your data and stores the associated metadata in the AWS Glue Data Catalog. Once your data is cataloged then it’s immediately query able and very available for ETL. AWS Glue works by generating the code that will execute your data transformations including the data loading processes. AWS Glue is useful in building your data warehouse to organize, cleanse, validate and format your data. It’s excellent if you want to transform and move AWS Cloud data into your data store.
For regular reporting and analysis, it allows you to load data from different sources into your data warehouse. AWS Glue is very good at discovering and cataloging metadata about your data. It puts all this for you into a central catalog. You can even process semi-structured data. AWS Glue has an advantage of triggering your ETL jobs. It does this based on an event or schedule. It does this by initiating jobs automatically. This then moves your data into your data warehouse. You can use these kinds of triggers to create some form of dependency flow between your jobs.
