Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Athena

We extensively use AWS Load balancers and a lot of traffic needs retrospection. Athena makes it quite simple and useful to query our traffic and analyze the service architecture. We also use AWS S3 extensively. Athena makes it quite simple to query around half a million records daily. We have tried other open source tools, none of which has been able to work in as fewer efforts as Athena did. I would definitely recommend it to others.
  • Load Balance traffic analysis
  • Big data report generation
  • Micro services pattern query analysis
  • Query manager can incoperate GUI based query designer
  • Auto-completion engine sometimes overwrite the query
  • Time range selection should be implicit
  • We have saved about 30% team bandwidth using Athena
  • We have saved about 100$ a month using athena for our analytics

Would you buy Amazon Athena again?


We use Athena extensively on our load balance traffic analyser. It helps us filter out bad requests and reason them quickly. Hence, a useful toolkit for monitoring stack We also use Athena on our report generation on a million per day datasets. It helps report generation quickly and easily on daily basis, which would've taken a lot of engineering efforts.
