Now Amazon Athena helps querying data in Amazon S3 Requester Pays buckets

Amazon Athena is an interactive query service which makes it simple to examine data straight in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) with the help of standard SQL. You can point Athena at your data stored in Amazon S3 using few clicks in the AWS Management Console and start utilizing standard SQL to execute ad-hoc queries and obtain results within seconds. There is no infrastructure to set up or manage as Athena is serverless, so you just charge for the queries you execute. Athena scales automatically—running queries simultaneously —so results are fast, even with large datasets and complex queries. Now Amazon Athena helps querying data in Amazon S3 Requester Pays buckets. Using this new launched feature, Athena workgroup administrators can configure workgroup settings to permit members to reference S3 Requester Pays buckets in queries. Once configured, the requester, rather than the bucket owner, pays for the Amazon S3 request and data transfer charges related to the query. Refer Create a Workgroup from Amazon Athena User Guide to know how to configure this setting for your workgroup. And to read further on Requester Pays buckets, click Requester Pays Buckets in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
