Amazon Athena is a program that is wonderful because it doesn't require you to download any bloated or unnecessary software. When you want to use a browser-based program to interpret and analyze your data using your S3, this is a great go-to. Querying data in CSV or Parquet format without having to overload your system is a huge plus that is extremely helpful.
  • Pay only for the data you store. Huge money-saver right there.
  • Being able to query using a browser-based system.
  • Compatibility with other programs is a nice feature that is very useful.
  • I wish that the program provided individualized access for different users instead of everyone seeing everything.
  • Initial setup can be a bit tedious for those unfamiliar with this type of querying.
  • Support can be a little lacking when it comes to additional features.
Amazon Athena is well suited for those who want to be able to use SQL queries to look at and analyze their data. Once you get up and running with the system and have all of your preferences ironed out, this is a very simple to understand and easy to use program that can help make information-based decisions. How could you not love that!?

What is Amazon Athena?

Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze data directly in Amazon S3 using standard SQL. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, customers can point Athena at their data stored in S3 and begin using standard SQL to run ad-hoc queries and get results in seconds. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to setup or manage, and customers pay only for the queries they run. You can use Athena to process logs, perform ad-hoc analysis, and run interactive queries. Athena scales automatically – executing queries in parallel – so results are fast, even with large datasets and complex queries.
