    Amazon Athena is an ETL-like cloud service launched in November 2016 which allows server-less[2] querying of AWS S3 content[3] using Presto with ANSI SQL support.[1][4]

    Amazon Athena supports many data formats, such as CSV, TSV, and JSON and also supports open source columnar formats such as Snappy and compressed data formats such as Zlib, LZO, and gzip.[5][6]

    The release of the Athena product can be seen as filling a gap in the AWS cloud offering, especially in relation to Google BigQuery which was released in 2011[7]. While BigQuery and Athena leverage different underlying technologies (Dremel[8] and Presto[9]), they are positioned in a similar capacity as serverless analytic services. It was not until the release of Athena that AWS had a comparable product offering to Google.
