Join us for the release of Nessie 1.0. Haven't heard about Nessie? Then read on:
Nessie is to Data Lakes what Git is to source code repositories.
Nessie is designed to give Data Lake users an always-consistent view of their data across their data sets (tables), no matter where they are. Changes to your data, for example from batch jobs, happen independently and are completely isolated. Users will not see any incomplete changes. Once all the changes are done, all the changes can be atomically and consistently applied and become visible to your users.
Nessie completely eliminates the hard and often manual work required to keep track of the individual data files. Nessie knows which data files are being used and which data files can safely be deleted.
Production, staging and development environments can use the same data lake without risking the consistent state of production data.
Nessie does not copy your data, instead it references the existing data, which works fine, because data files1 are immutable.
