Amazon Web Services (AWS) today announced Kinesis Firehose, a new tool to push data from a web app, mobile app, or telemetry system into AWS storage systems for further analysis.

Initially Kinesis Firehose will work with S3 and RedShift, but more support will become available over time, AWS senior vice president Andy Jassy said at the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas.

The service offers data concatenation options that developers can configure. It’s available today.

Details on Kinesis Firehose are in a blog post from AWS chief evangelist Jeff Barr.

The Kinesis service, first announced in 2013, is now called Kinesis Streams, Jassy said.
