Upsolver Sponsors the Subsurface Lakehouse Conference

Apache Iceberg is pivotal in the evolution of open data lakehouses, blending the best features of data lakes and data warehouses. It provides an open table format that is essential for organizations seeking to manage large volumes of data without being tied to a specific vendor. This flexibility is crucial as it allows businesses to choose the best tools for their needs, fostering innovation and efficiency. Apache Iceberg enables features like schema evolution, time travel, and efficient data querying, which are vital for modern data management and analytics.

The Subsurface Lakehouse Conference for several years highlights Apache Iceberg's importance in building robust data lakehouses. This event is a hub for learning about the latest trends and practices in data lakehouse architecture, including the implementation, governance, and management of these systems. The 2024 conference schedule is packed with sessions dedicated to Apache Iceberg, featuring talks on interoperability among lakehouse table formats, the future of Apache Iceberg in data architecture, and data contracts specific to Iceberg.

Notable sessions include discussions on optimizing data lakehouse performance using Apache Iceberg in conjunction with Dremio's SQL query engine, best practices for building Iceberg data lakehouses, and innovative applications like merge-on-read pipelines at scale. These talks are led by experts in the field, including co-creators of Apache Iceberg and data infrastructure leaders from major companies. The conference serves as a testament to Apache Iceberg's growing influence and critical role in shaping the future of open data lakehouses, offering a platform for professionals to share knowledge, discuss challenges, and explore new possibilities in data management and analytics.

Upsolver is deeply invested in Apache Iceberg's value to the data community, recognizing its pivotal role in transforming data lakes into highly efficient and flexible data lakehouses.
