Amazon Kinesis Data Streams adds capability to easily inspect data records in Amazon Web Services Management ConsolePosted On: Oct 31, 2022
Amazon Kinesis Data Streams is a serverless streaming data service that makes it easy to capture, process, and store streaming data at massive scale. Data Viewer is a new capability for Amazon Kinesis Data Streams that allows viewing data records directly from Amazon Web Services Management Console. As a result, you can easily inspect the data records without programming a dedicated consumer app just to view the data, quickly check the data structure of an unfamiliar stream, or query specific records for QA and troubleshooting.

Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose now supports Splunk as a delivery destination in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. This native integration between Kinesis Data Firehose and Splunk Enterprise is designed to make data ingestion into Splunk Enterprise seamless, secure, and reliable. With this integration, there are no heavy forwarders to manage or set up. You just create a Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream, stream events into it, and the delivery stream will continuously deliver these events to Splunk. You also have the option to backup your raw data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

Amazon Kinesis Data Streams for Amazon DynamoDB now supports Amazon CloudFormation, which means you can enable streaming to an Amazon Kinesis data stream on your DynamoDB tables with CloudFormation templates. By streaming your DynamoDB data changes to a Kinesis data stream, you can build advanced streaming applications with Amazon Kinesis services. For example, Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics reduces the complexity of building, managing, and integrating with Apache Flink, and provides built-in functions to filter, aggregate, and transform streaming data for advanced analytics. You also can use Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose to take advantage of managed streaming delivery of DynamoDB table data to other Amazon Web Service services such as Amazon Elasticsearch Service, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon S3.

Apache Flink Kinesis Consumer now supports Enhanced Fan Out (EFO) and the HTTP/2 data retrieval API for Amazon Kinesis Data Streams. EFO allows Amazon Kinesis Data Streams consumers to scale by offering each consumer a dedicated read throughput up to 2MB/second. The HTTP/2 data retrieval API reduces latency of data delivery from producers to consumers to 70 milliseconds or better. In combination, these two features allow you to build low latency Apache Flink applications that utilize dedicated throughput from Amazon Kinesis Data Streams.

Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink now supports streaming applications built using Apache Beam Java SDK version 2.23. Apache Beam is an open-source, unified model for defining streaming and batch data processing applications that can be executed across multiple execution engines. This release allows you to build Apache Beam streaming applications in Java and run them using Apache Flink 1.8 on Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics, Apache Spark running on-premises, and other execution engines supported by Apache.

You can now process multiple Amazon Kinesis data streams with a single Kinesis Client Library (KCL) based consumer application. Previously, each KCL based application processes a single Kinesis data stream. With this new capability, you can update the list of streams at runtime for multi-stream processing in a scalable KCL application without redeploying the application. This reduces operational overhead of maintaining multiple KCL applications.

The new version adds support for the Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) Assume Role credentials provider, includes bug fixes, and updates the Amazon SDK and other dependencies.
Amazon Kinesis Data Streams announces two new API features to simplify consuming data from Kinesis streamsPosted On: Aug 18, 2020
Amazon Kinesis Data Streams announces two new API features that simplify applications that consume data from Kinesis Data streams. The first feature is an optional filtering field in the ListShards API that enables you to set filtering criteria for the shards that you want to list from a data stream. For example, you can now use a timestamp filter to list shards with data at a certain time point. The second feature is a new field called ChildShards in the GetRecords and the SubscribeToShards APIs that enables you to discover child shards of a closed shard (without having to use the ListShards API to list all closed and open shards). Applications consuming data from Kinesis Data Streams can use this new field to efficiently transition reading from a closed shard to reading from its child shard. This is a common use case encountered by consuming applications when a shard is closed due to stream scaling operations.

We are excited to announce the new ListShards API which makes it easier for your Kinesis Data Streams KCL applications to scale. Many Kinesis Data Streams customers use the KCL to process records from their data streams. Starting in version 1.9.0 or later, key KCL API functions now use the ListShards API, which supports a 10x higher call rate limit compared to the DescribeStream API, which was used for these functions in earlier KCL versions.
