Amazon EMR Studio - Amazon EMR

Amazon EMR Studio

Amazon EMR Studio is a web-based integrated development environment (IDE) for fully managed Jupyter notebooks that run on Amazon EMR clusters. You can set up an EMR Studio for your team to develop, visualize, and debug applications written in R, Python, Scala, and PySpark. EMR Studio is integrated with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and IAM Identity Center so users can log in using their corporate credentials.

You can create an EMR Studio at no cost. Applicable charges for Amazon S3 storage and for Amazon EMR clusters apply when you use EMR Studio. For product details and highlights, see the service page for Amazon EMR Studio.
