elcome back to Working with Amazon Kinesis. I'm Richard Augenti and I'll be your instructor for this lesson. In this lesson we're gonna wrap up the course with a quick review and some main takeaways. Amazon Kinesis Stream is mainly used for streaming solutions which it'll filter own applications to load, transform and deliver your data. It's highly scalable and flexible and has a heavier focus on using the Kinesis Stream's APIs and libraries. Amazon Kinesis Firehose is similar to the function as Amazon Kinesis Streams.
The main difference is that it's a fully managed service which handles all the administration of the workload for you. Amazon Kinesis Analytics is a fully manged analytics solution. It provides an easy way to process and analyze streaming data with standard and SQL. The console provides a simple way to work with the streaming data by providing tools, to edit the schema low and building queries. I recommend the entire in Amazon Kinesis documentation to get more acquainted with the overall product.
I also recommend working through all tutorials since it's best learned by doing. Well, that wraps up our review in our course. It's been a pleasure spending this time with you on this course and I wish you well with your continued journey with Amazon Kinesis and streaming data. I'm Richard Augenti and I thank you for joining me with Working with Amazon Kinesis.
