The special thing I think is that Glue is full-managed ETL service.

As you're saying, EC2 can do what Glue does.

Glue

  • can define a crawler for metadata table definitions
  • can load data to and from other AWS services
  • can create logs
  • can run scheduled jobs, on demand jobs
  • is serverless

If we use EC2, we need to take care of everything above and take time.

(If the project is small enough, using EC2 might be enough.)
