Multiple isolated domains/catalogs in an organization, each containing a folder hierarchy of tables and views.
Designed to enable data mesh (including federated ownership and data sharing)

Access Control (Coming soon!)

Table, column- and row-based access control
Custom roles and integration with existing user/group directories (AAD, Okta, etc.)

Manage your Data as Code

Dremio Arctic uses branches, tags, and commits to simplify data management, eliminate expensive data copies, and give data consumers a consistent view of the data.


Experiment with data without impacting other users.

Version Control

Reproduce models and dashboards from historical data, and easily recover from mistakes by undoing accidental data or metadata changes.


Track all changes to the data and metadata.

Automatic Data Optimization

Dremio Arctic automates many tedious data management tasks so the data lakehouse is always efficient and performant.

Table Optimization

Dremio Arctic automatically rewrites smaller files into larger files, and groups similar rows in a table together. Table optimization accelerates query performance.

Table Cleanup

Dremio Arctic automatically removes unused manifest files, manifest lists, and data files. Table Cleanup ensures efficient use of storage resources.
