A data lake is a repository for structured, semistructured, and unstructured data in any format and size and at any scale that can be analyzed easily. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), you can build a secure, cost-effective, and easy-to-manage data lake. A data lake on OCI is tightly integrated with your preferred data warehouses and analytics as well as with other OCI services, such as data catalog, security, and observability services.
Move your data in batches or streams seamlessly to an OCI data lake where it can be analyzed. Leverage OCI Data Integration, OCI GoldenGate, or OCI Streaming to ingest your data and store it in OCI Object Storage.
A central data lake on OCI integrates with your preferred tools, including databases such as Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, analytics and machine learning (ML) tools such as Oracle Analytics Cloud, and open source projects such as Apache Spark.
A comprehensive set of AI and ML services lets you gain new insights from your data, make predictions, lower your operational overhead, and improve customer experience.
A data lake makes it possible to work with more kinds of data, but the time and effort needed to manage it can be disadvantageous. By offering fully managed open source data lake services, OCI provides both lower costs and less management, so you can expect reduced operational costs, improved scalability and security, and the ability to incorporate all of your current data in one place.
Data warehouses and data marts are crucial to successful businesses. Integrating them with a data lake will increase their value even more. Integration among databases, data warehouses, and a data lake with Oracle means that data can be accessed from multiple locations with a single SQL query. Current applications and tools get transparent access to all data, with no changes and no need to learn new skills.
Data generated by enterprise applications is highly valuable, but it’s rarely fully utilized. A data lake on OCI simplifies access to data from multiple applications and enables sophisticated analysis that can mean the difference between a good quarter or a bad quarter.

Oracle Autonomous Database supports integration with data lakes—not just on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, but also on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and more. You have the option of loading data into the database or querying the data directly in the source object store. Both approaches use the same tools and APIs to access the data.
This architecture is sometimes referred to as a lakehouse architecture.
One MySQL Database service for transactions, analytics, and machine learning. Real-time, secure analytics without the complexity, latency, and cost of extract, transform, and load (ETL) duplication. Available on OCI, AWS, and Azure.
* MySQL HeatWave Lakehouse is currently in beta.
** Public benchmarks are available here.
