S3 Data Lake

What is a Data lake?

Data lake is a repository of any kind of data. You can combine data lakes with the advantages of a cloud object storage to store structured and unstructured data.

What does this mean?

Structured data as a database is made for processing, analysis and addressing more efficiently.
Unstructured data is data in its raw, natural format. For example: images, documents, source codes, binaries, disk images, mp4 files, etc. It is not easily addressable and it is not prepared for adequate data querying.

Data lakes help obtaining and processing your structured and unstructured data.
