Public cloud infrastructures such as Amazon and Azure provide almost unlimited resources and scalability to handle both structured and semi-structured data (XML, JSON, AVRO) at Petabyte scale. These infrastructures combined with new processing engines allow organizations and businesses new opportunities to leverage analytics at an unprecedented scale while greatly simplifying data pipeline architectures and providing an alternative to the "data lake".
