Amazon Glue Interactive Sessions are now generally available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. They provide a new interface for Amazon Glue's highly scalable Serverless Spark environment. They support interactive data integration job development, data exploration, and on-demand distributed data processing for customers' own applications.

Amazon Glue is a serverless data integration service for both data engineers and data analysts. Interactive Sessions let them process data interactively using the Jupyter-based notebook or IDE of their choice. Sessions start in seconds and have built-in cost management, as well as the option to use Glue version 2.0 or 3.0. Customers pay for only the resources they use and need not do any up-front configuration.
