BUILDING A GOVERNED DATA LAKE IN THE CLOUD Cloud Solution Brief 1 If you haven't already, you may be considering expanding your data lake to a public and/or private cloud. As the volume and type of big data con nues to grow, the cloud makes financial sense and provides much-desired on-demand processing and storage scalability. With no one-size-fits-all approach, organiza ons are building their data pla orms using mul ple deployment models, such as on-premises, hybrid, cloud and mul -cloud. However, integra ng the cloud into your data lake ecosystem can be complicated. One key challenge is managing and governing the data that spans on-premises and cloud-based compu ng across the enterprise. Although capturing unstructured and semi-structured data in public cloud pla orms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microso Azure is rela vely straigh orward, these providers do not capture metadata. Metadata is essen al for managing, migra ng, accessing and deploying big data – and leveraging many of the benefits associated with the data lake architecture.
