CodeBreakfast: Delta Sharing and its Place in the Data Mesh

Code Breakfast March 9th – 8:30 - 10:30


  • Wednesday, March 9th
  • 8:30 – 10:30 CET (doors open, breakfast is served, from 8 AM onwards)
  • GoDataDriven office, Wibautstraat 200, Amsterdam

What to Expect

In this Code Breakfast, Kris Geusebroek and Niels Zeilemaker will introduce you to the details of the Delta Sharing protocol and perform a live demonstration of data requests via the protocol using Apache Spark and Python. After this introduction, we will continue to explore the protocol and its use with different datasets in the hands-on part of the code breakfast. Since the protocol and DataMesh concept is cloud-agnostic we will try to combine datasets from different cloud platforms.

Delta Lake and the Data Mesh

Creating a decentralized data platform instead of a single central one has gained a lot of traction. The paradigm shift towards a data mesh was triggered by the observation that while domain-driven design heavily influenced the way we design operational systems, central data platforms kept being developed as centralized monoliths.

In May of 2021, Databricks released Delta Sharing, an open protocol for the secure exchange of massive datasets. Through the generation of pre-signed, short-lived URLs pointing directly at requested data, and their distribution to authenticated data consumers, Delta Sharing facilitates real-time, platform-agnostic access to an organization’s information. This makes it well-suited as a means to inter-domain dataset distribution in the Data Mesh, an architectural paradigm that erupted into the public consciousness at around the same time.
