Using Amazon EMR - Amazon Kinesis Data Streams
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Using Amazon EMR

Amazon EMR clusters can read and process Amazon Kinesis streams directly, using familiar tools in the Hadoop ecosystem such as Hive, Pig, MapReduce, the Hadoop Streaming API, and Cascading. You can also join real-time data from Amazon Kinesis with existing data on Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, and HDFS in a running cluster. You can directly load the data from Amazon EMR to Amazon S3 or DynamoDB for post-processing activities.

For more information, see Amazon Kinesis in the Amazon EMR Release Guide.
