InsiderPro November 15, 2020 – Looking at Both Sides of the Data Lake Argument
Some see it as the new data warehouse for the Big Data era, while others see a mess that can easily turn into a swamp.
For many decades, the data warehouse was the go-to technology for storing large amounts of data for querying and data mining. This should not be confused with the venerable database, which has a different mode of operation and use.
The data lake arrived at the same time as the advent of Big Data. The concept was coined in 2010 by James Dixon, founder of Pentaho (now a part of Hitachi Vantara), in a blog post announcing his company’s first Hadoop-based release. He argued that data marts, aka data warehouses, had several problems, such as size restrictions to narrow research parameters.
