Supported Formats and SerDes
The data formats presently supported are:
In order to use these formats you must specify a serializer-deserializer class (SerDe) so that Athena knows the format of the table. A SerDe is a custom library that tells the Athena-managed Catalog how to handle your data.
Currently, Snappy, Zlib, and GZIP are the supported compression formats. LZO is not supported.
