A table format for large, slow-moving tabular data
Iceberg came up on a call I had this week and I hadn’t heard about it before. It’s similar to Delta Lake
, which I’ve covered before, as well as Snowflake Time Travel
. Each of these solutions brings the data warehouse and the data lake closer together by giving certain guarantees on top of files stored within blob storage. This trend is a critical one to understand in the evolution of data warehouse technology.
