Today’s organizations are tasked with managing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organizations are finding that in order to deliver insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems. A data lake is an architectural approach that allows you to store massive amounts of data into a central location, so it’s readily available to be categorized, processed, analyzed, and consumed by diverse groups within an organization. Since data - structured and unstructured - can be stored as-is, there’s no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.  

By leveraging AWS, you can easily provision exactly the
resources and scale you need to power any big data applications, meet demand, and improve innovation.
