A serverless data lake architecture’s primary advantage is the ability to store objects in a highly durable, secure, and scalable manner with only milliseconds of latency for data access. A serverless solution provides the ability to load any type of data – from web sites, business apps, and mobile apps to even IoT sensors.
Serverless architectures offer greater automation and scalability, more flexibility, and quicker time to market, all at a reduced cost.
Compared to other cloud-based data lake solutions, serverless data lake enables lower latency for data life cycle; data is processed in milliseconds as soon as it is generated.
A serverless data lake solution can also handle small, medium and large files, which is done by splitting large files into smaller files and processing each file in separate serverless job streams running in parallel.
