Job summary

AWS Lake Formation is a service that makes it easy to set up a secure data lake in days. A data lake is a centralized, curated, and secured repository that stores all your data, both in its original form and prepared for analysis.

Lake Formation then helps you collect and catalog data from databases and object storage, move the data into your new Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) data lake, clean and classify your data using ML algorithms, and secure access to your sensitive data using granular controls at the column, row, and cell-levels. Your users can access a centralized data catalog that describes available datasets and their appropriate usage.
