Until now, data lakes have been too difficult for most companies. Despite significant innovation in query engines and table formats to bring data warehouse performance and functionality to the data lake, companies are stuck figuring out how to build and maintain data lakes instead of deriving value from data.
That’s why we built Dremio Cloud, the world’s first free, fully managed data lakehouse platform that makes creating insights from data easier than ever. (If you haven’t done so, I highly suggest you check out the blog from our founder, Tomer, that discusses the vision and motivation behind the Dremio Cloud platform.)
In this blog, we’ll take a closer look into Dremio Cloud’s key services: Dremio Sonar, a lakehouse query engine, and Dremio Arctic, an intelligent metastore for Apache Iceberg that provides a unique Git-like experience for the lakehouse. These services bring new capabilities to the data lakehouse, beyond what was previously possible in both data lakes and warehouses, so we’ll take some time to discuss the key features and technologies that make this possible.
Sonar is a lakehouse query engine that provides lightning-fast SQL queries directly on data lakes and a self-service user experience that makes data consumable, consistent, and collaborative.
Simply put, Sonar helps organizations access more data freely so they can make better business decisions. Sonar does this by combining a best-in-class query engine with a seamless, self-service user experience for data consumers. Here’s a quick rundown of the key technologies that make this possible:
Sonar works for everyone, from BI teams with stringent SLAs, to developers building data applications, or citizen data analysts trying to answer new business questions. Enterprises around the world use Sonar to drive their SQL workloads, including 3 of the Fortune 5.
Arctic is an intelligent metastore for Apache Iceberg that uniquely provides users a Git-like experience to branch, tag, and time travel datasets all while automatically optimizing the files to ensure high-performance analytics today and in the future as users, use cases, and data volumes grow.
Simply put, Arctic helps organizations automate lakehouse operations and simplify data workflows. It brings several key capabilities to the lakehouse that innovate far beyond the legacy metastores of earlier data lakes:
Until now, data lakes and lakehouses have been difficult to adopt because of the overhead needed to build and manage them. Arctic is a revolutionary service that not only makes lakehouses easier than ever before by automating data management tasks, but also gives data teams entirely new ways to work with data.
Dremio Cloud is a frictionless, infinitely scalable platform that helps organizations run all their SQL workloads and automate data management operations with a Git-like experience. We’re excited about the new capabilities for your data. All of Sonar and Arctic’s key capabilities are available today through Dremio Cloud’s forever-free Standard edition — get started today!
