Machine learning unicorn Databricks has donated its Apache 2.0 licensed “Delta Lake” product to the Linux Foundation. Delta Lake is a “production-ready” open source tool designed to provide data lake reliability for both batch and streaming data.
It aims to tackle data reliability challenges in data lakes by making transactions ACID compliant, enabling concurrent reads and writes.
Since its launch in October 2017, it has been adopted by over 4,000 organisations, including Intel, and processes over two exabytes of data each month, Databricks said today, announcing the donation of the technology to the Foundation.
