Amazon opensearch service now offers a new serverless option, Amazon Opensearch Serverless. This option simplifies the process of running petabyte-scale search and analytics workloads without having to configure, manage, or scale OpenSearch clusters. OpenSearch Serverless automatically provisions and scales the underlying resources to deliver fast data ingestion and query responses for even the most demanding and unpredictable workloads. With OpenSearch Serverless, you pay only for the resources consumed.
OpenSearch Serverless decouples compute and storage and separates the indexing (ingest) components from the search (query) components, with Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) as the primary data storage for indexes. With this decoupled architecture, OpenSearch Serverless can scale search and indexing functions independently of each other, and independently of the indexed data in Amazon S3. For example, when an application-monitoring workload receives a sudden burst of logging activities during an availability event, OpenSearch Serverless instantly scales the resources to ingest and store the data without impacting query response times.
Amazon Aurora zero-ETL integration with Amazon Redshift enables near-real-time analytics and Machine Learning on transaction data. It helps to consolidate data from multiple Aurora databases, updates automatically and continuously, and is serverless, with no infrastructure to manage.
Amazon Redshift integration for Apache Spark is now generally available. Now you can run Spark queries on Redshift data from EMR, Glue and SageMaker within seconds, without the need to move any data. Amazon Redshift Integration for Apache Spark supports the most popular language frameworks (Java, Python, R and Scala)
