Amazon Kinesis is a fully managed service for real-time processing of streaming data at massive scale. Amazon Kinesis can collect and process hundreds of terabytes of data per hour from hundreds of thousands of sources, allowing you to easily write applications that process information in real-time, from sources such as web site click-streams, marketing and financial information, manufacturing instrumentation and social media, and operational logs and metering data.
With Amazon Kinesis applications, you can build real-time dashboards, capture exceptions and generate alerts, drive recommendations, and make other real-time business or operational decisions. You can also easily send data to a variety of other services such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon DynamoDB, or Amazon Redshift. In a few clicks and a couple of lines of code, you can start building applications which respond to changes in your data stream in seconds, at any scale, while only paying for the resources you use.
