You can now use the Glue Schema Registry, a serverless and free feature of Glue, in China (Beijing) and China (Ningxia) regions to validate and control the evolution of streaming data using registered Apache Avro schemas.

The Schema Registry acts as a control center for managing data format and structure between decoupled applications in data streaming systems. By using it, you can eliminate defensive coding and cross-team coordination, improve streaming data quality, and reduce downstream application failures. It’s also integrated across multiple services, so you don’t need to use multiple registries for different services.  

Through Apache-licensed serializers and deserializers, the Schema Registry integrates with Java applications developed for Apache Kafka/Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK), Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, Apache Flink/Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink, and Amazon Lambda.
