AWS Lake Formation and Glue Data Catalog now manage Apache Hive Metastore resources

AWS Lake Formation and the Glue Data Catalog now extend data cataloging, data sharing and fine-grained access control support for customers using a self-managed Apache Hive Metastore (HMS) as their data catalog. Previously, customers had to replicate their metadata into the AWS Glue Data Catalog in order use Lake Formation permissions and data sharing capabilities. Now, customers can integrate their HMS metadata within AWS, allowing them to discover data alongside native tables in the Glue data catalog, manage permissions and sharing from Lake Formation, and query data using AWS analytics services.
