RBloggers|RBloggers-feedburner I am happy to announce that RAthena-1.9.0 and noctua-1.7.0 have been released onto the cran. They both bring two key features: More stability when working with AWS Athena, focusing on AWS Rate Exceeded throttling errors New helper function to convert AWS S3 backend files to save cost NOTE: RAthena and noctua features correspond to each other, as a result I will refer to them interchangeability. Stability Throttling AWS One of the main problems when working with AWS API is stumbling into Rate Exceeded throttling error.
