Snowplow S3 Loader 2.2.0 released

We are pleased to announce Version 2.2.0 of Snowplow’s S3 Loader

The S3 Loader is a key component of a Snowplow AWS pipeline for loading either raw events, enriched events, or failed events to cloud storage.

Starting from this release we are publishing three different flavours of the docker image.

  • Pull the :2.2.0 tag if you only need GZip output format
  • Pull the :2.2.0-lzo tag if you also need LZO output format
  • Pull the :2.2.0-distroless tag for an lightweight alternative to :2.2.0
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-s3-loader:2.2.0
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-s3-loader:2.2.0-lzo
docker pull snowplow/snowplow-s3-loader:2.2.0-distroless

We removed LZO support from the standard image, because it means we can more easily eliminate security vulnerabilities that are brought in from a dependency on Hadoop version 2.

The “distroless” docker image is built from a more lightweight base image. It provides some security advantages, because it carries only the minimal files and executables needed for the loader to run.

Our docs site has a full user guide for the S3 Loader and an upgrade guide for version 2.2.0
