Data Lake

What is a Data Lake?

A data lake is a flat architectural, enterprise-wide system for storing disparate forms of data in native format, including structured, semi-structured or unstructured data. You can implement a data lake in an enterprise data center or in the cloud.

What’s the benefit of a cloud-based data lake?

A cloud-based data lake eliminates equipment cost and complexity. Generally speaking, avoiding infrastructure design efforts, hardware procurement, installation and turn-up tasks can decrease rollout times from months to weeks. Cloud data lakes also enable instant and infinite scalability to meet rapidly evolving business requirements and improve customer satisfaction. And compared to an on-premise data lake, a cloud-based data lake poses a lower risk. Users can replicate data across regions to improve resiliency and ensure continued availability in the event of a catastrophe.
