Ask HN: Is anybody using AWS Glue?
4 points by muramira 10 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 1 comment
Our team is evaluating AWS Glue and Databricks. It seems nobody is excited about glue. Even in the blogosphere, there's virtually nothing! What gives!

I am also curious about it as I've only recently become aware of Athena and Redshift Spectrum for querying data files on S3 w/o any ETL

Cost control and query performance are big concerns with Athena, as I understand it Glue can help with re-formatting your data for reducing querying costs and performance

Not sure what Databricks the business has to do with AWS Glue
