Why can't we just store all this information into a data warehouse?
Well, This was exactly what was happening for a long period of time. Unfortunately, as the speed of business has increased, and so has the sheer volume of data. Data warehouses were unable to keep up with the amount of curating and scaling required to support such volumes of data. It was becoming cost-prohibitive and slowing down query speed to try and maintain all of this data in an active database.
So the advent of the data lake became a necessity. We needed a place where we could store large volumes of information for cheap.
