Announcing general availability of Amazon Athena ACID transactions, powered by Apache Iceberg

We are excited to announce the general availability of Amazon Athena ACID transactions, a new capability that adds insert, update, delete, and time travel operations to Athena’s SQL data manipulation language (DML). Athena ACID transactions enable multiple concurrent users to make reliable, row-level modifications to their Amazon S3 data from Athena’s console, API, and ODBC and JDBC drivers. Built on the Apache Iceberg table format, Athena ACID transactions are optimized for Amazon S3 storage, support seamless schema evolution, and ensure atomic operations across other services and engines that support the Iceberg table format such as Amazon EMR, Apache Spark, and Apache Flink.
