Data is the most precious resource for a business to examine and view insights for better decision-making. However, enormous data flow makes data processing and analyzing arduous for business owners. One of the reason why enterprises are exploring outside the conventional data architecture to meet their data processing and analytical needs.
Databricks hopes to solve this problem using Medallion Architecture and Delta Lake Framework in Lakehouse. This Architecture promises ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability) by percolating data through various levels of conversions and validations before storing it in a format intended for analysis.
Although cloud computing presents a lot of opportunities for growth for any enterprise, there are many factors that can become a challenge to a seamless flow. These are some of the common hindrances that need to be addressed to leverage the cloud to optimum.
With the Medallion architecture, these obstructions can not only be overcome but also turn into opportunities for total enterprise evolution.
What is Medallion Architecture? And, what are its three layers?
Medallion architecture, also known as “multi-hop” architecture, is a data design pattern used to organize the data in a lakehouse, with the goal of incrementally and progressively elevating the data as it passes through each layer of the architecture (Bronze to Silver to Gold layer tables).
Benefits of a Lakehouse Architecture
Organizations generate data from innumerable sources like IoT devices, OnPrem source systems, and numerous databases, amassing them in a data lake for analytics and machine learning processes. To get the best of this data, modern architecture is a must, a solution is required that permits them to move data amid data lakes to store data efficiently. Lakehouse architecture is the perfect solution as it provides many benefits-
As the data passes through the architectural layers of the lakehouse, the quality of data keeps getting better. Much akin to the distillation process, each layer generates processed data and its byproduct that can be used in many different ways by an enterprise.
