AWS Glue Streaming ETL now supports auto-decompression

AWS Glue streaming ETL (Extract Transform and Load) can now detect compressed data streaming from Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK), and self managed Apache Kafka. It can then automatically decompresses this data without customers having to write code, saving them development hours. AWS Glue Streaming ETL jobs continuously consume data from streaming sources, cleans and transforms the data in-flight, and makes it available for analysis in seconds. Customers compress data prior to streaming in-order to improve performance and to avoid throttling limits by Amazon Kinesis and Amazon MSK. Prior to this feature, customers had to write user defined functions to uncompress data from a stream, which is time consuming.
