BI on your data
Make new, real-time data instantly available for querying by data analysts for immediate insights on your business by running business intelligence workloads directly on your data lake. Delta Lake allows you to operate a multicloud lakehouse architecture that provides data warehousing performance at data lake economics for up to 6x better price/performance for SQL workloads than traditional cloud data warehouses.
Unify batch and streaming
Run both batch and streaming operations on one simplified architecture that avoids complex, redundant systems and operational challenges. In Delta Lake, a table is both a batch table and a streaming source and sink. Streaming data ingest, batch historic backfill and interactive queries all work out of the box and directly integrate with Spark Structured Streaming.
Meet regulatory needs
Delta Lake removes the malformed data ingestion challenges, difficulty deleting data for compliance, and issues modifying data for change data capture. With support for ACID transactions on your data lake, Delta Lake ensures that every operation either fully succeeds or fully aborts for later retries — without requiring new data pipelines to be created. Additionally, Delta Lake records all past transactions on your data lake, so it’s easy to access and use previous versions of your data to meet compliance standards like GDPR and CCPA reliably.
