Welcome to another exciting blog post, where we will dive deep and explore how we helped a long-standing AWS customer regain control over their data lake, consisting of over 3 Petabytes (PB) of S3 data.
This customer embarked on their cloud journey over a decade ago, embracing the scalability and flexibility offered by AWS. Nevertheless, as time went by, they found themselves grappling with a growing challenge – an ever-increasing pool of data that had accumulated within their S3 buckets. Data management practices had adjusted with growth, however, the customer had no clear visibility into which data was essential to retain and which could be safely removed.
How can we decide what needs to be retained if we don't have visibility of the inventory we have?
