Amazon Athena updates the JDBC driver for more performance output when retrieving results

Amazon Athena is a Serverless cloud computing service that provides query service to analyze the data in the Amazon Simple Storage Service by using standard SQL. With Athena, you only have to pay for the queries that you run and it offers simplified functions where you don’t need complex ETL jobs to prepare the data. JDBC connection can be used to connect Amazon Athena with Business Intelligence tools and other applications. AWS has now released a new version which is JDBC driver 2.0.5 that can deliver up to 2x performance rate when retrieving results less than the 10000 rows and 5-6x performance rate when retrieving results more than 10000 rows. This feature will be enabled by default.
