Data Lakes

A Closer Look at The Next Phase of Cloudera's Hybrid Data Lakehouse

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is primed to reshape the way just about every business operates. Cloudera research projected that more than one third (36%) of organizations in the U.S. are in the early stages of exploring the potential for AI implementation. But even with its rise, AI is still a struggle for some enterprises. AI, and any analytics for that matter, are only as good as the data upon which they are based. And that’s where the rub is.

The Best Data Lake Tools: A Buyer's Guide

A data lake is a main storage repository that can hold vast amounts of raw, unstructured data. A data lake is not the same as a data warehouse, which maintains data in structured files. Five key takeaways about data lake tools: A data warehouse uses a hierarchical structure, whereas the architecture of a data lake is flat.

Build an Open Data Lakehouse with Iceberg Tables, Now in Public Preview

Apache Iceberg’s ecosystem of diverse adopters, contributors and commercial support continues to grow, establishing itself as the industry standard table format for an open data lakehouse architecture. Snowflake’s support for Iceberg Tables is now in public preview, helping customers build and integrate Snowflake into their lake architecture. In this blog post, we’ll dive deeper into the considerations for selecting an Iceberg Table catalog and how catalog conversion works.

What Well-Designed Data Lake Architecture Looks Like

The importance of a well-structured data lake architecture cannot be overstated. As businesses work with an ever-increasing influx of data, the need for a robust, scalable, and efficient data storage solution becomes crucial. Let’s explore Data Lake Architecture Design—a concept revolutionizing how enterprises store, access, analyze, and compute their data.

Data Lake vs Data Warehouse

Data warehouses and data lakes represent two of the leading solutions for enterprise data management in 2023. While data warehouses and data lakes may share some overlapping features and use cases, there are fundamental differences in the data management philosophies, design characteristics, and ideal use conditions for each of these technologies.

Data Lake Architecture & The Future of Log Analytics

Organizations are leveraging log analytics in the cloud for a variety of use cases, including application performance monitoring, troubleshooting cloud services, user behavior analysis, security operations and threat hunting, forensic network investigation, and supporting regulatory compliance initiatives. But with enterprise data growing at astronomical rates, organizations are finding it increasingly costly, complex, and time-consuming to capture, securely store, and efficiently analyze their log data.
