Overall Satisfaction with AWS Glue

One of the straightforward and quick cloud-based ETL tools is AWS Glue. It comes under the umbrella of AWS services. We use AWS Glue to analyze an extensive data set of USA based clinics and hospitals. Its HIPAA compliance for sensitive data. It comes with the support of python script, Schedular, and works very well with other AWS services like s3, rds.
  • Very quick for ETL job.
  • UI as well Command Interface with very few steps to create and schedule ETL Job.
  • Sample Code is very basic and not available in most of the scenario.
  • Helps to leverage the data in realtime.
  • Leads to quick and clear business decision making.
We are already in AWS services, so AWS glue is the first choice for us. But for the comparison of ETL job making and process time, it's way faster for other services.
Amazon responds in good time once the ticket has been generated but needs to generate tickets frequent because very few sample codes are available, and it's not cover all the scenarios.

AWS glue is best if your organization is dealing with large and sensitive data like medical record. Its comes with scheduler and easy deployment for AWS user. The data catalog keeps the reference of the data in a well-structured format. If you are already part of the AWS services, then AWS Glue is the best choice; otherwise, it's not a simple one for deployment.
