Amazon EMR now supports Apache Iceberg, a highly performant, concurrent, ACID-compliant table format for data lakes

We are excited to announce that Amazon EMR 6.5.0 now includes Apache Iceberg version 0.12. Apache Iceberg is an open table format for large data sets in Amazon S3 and provides fast query performance over large tables, atomic commits, concurrent writes, and SQL-compatible table evolution. With the current release, you can use Apache Spark 3.1.2 on EMR clusters with the Iceberg table format.
