They represent a large fraction of the AWS business, and continue to accelerate.

The Team:
AWS Glue is a fully managed, next-generation data integration service. AWS Glue makes it simple and cost-effective to organize and categorize your data, as well as clean, enrich, and prepare it for fast analytics.
