Data lake modernization

A data lake that powers any analysis on any data

Google Cloud’s data lake empowers data professionals to securely and cost-effectively ingest, store, and analyze large volumes of diverse, full-fidelity data. Building your data lake on Google Cloud’s auto-scaling services allows you to decouple storage from compute to increase query speeds and manage cost at a per-gigabyte level.

Modernize your data lake your way

Re-host your data lake on Google Cloud

If you’ve already invested time into your on-premises data lake but you don’t want to rebuild from scratch in the cloud, lift and shift your data and code to Google Cloud to unlock cloud cost savings and scale.

Burst a data lake workload to Google Cloud

Take a resource-intensive data or analytic processing workload (ETL, SQL, model training, etc.) and burst it to the cloud, so you can autoscale compute without provisioning new hardware. Keep the workload running in the cloud or simply end the cluster after the peak has passed.

Build a cloud-native data lake on Google Cloud

If your data lake turned into a swamp and you want to rethink your plan, build a cloud-native data lake on Google Cloud to help your data engineers, data analysts, and data scientists accelerate development of analytics.

Key benefits

Fully managed services

Google Cloud’s fully managed services remove the complexities associated with managing physical hardware. This means you can provision and autoscale clusters for easier management in as little as 90 seconds, and almost instantly spin up new resources and services.

Accelerate data and analytics processing

Decrease your data and analytics processing times from hours to seconds by scaling compute independent of storage. You can also power real-time applications, train large scale models, and execute burst queries in seconds, without having to provision more hardware.
