Accessing and visualizing data from multiple data sources with Amazon Athena and Amazon QuickSight | AWS Big Data Blog

Amazon Athena now supports federated query, a feature that allows you to query data in sources other than Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). You can use federated queries in Athena to query the data in place or build pipelines that extract data from multiple data sources and store them in Amazon S3. With Athena Federated Query, you can run SQL queries across data stored in relational, non-relational, object, and custom data sources. Athena queries including federated queries can be run from the Athena console, a JDBC or ODBC connection, the Athena API, the Athena CLI, the AWS SDK, or AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell.
