Lakehouse: Bronze, silver, and gold levels of data

Is this a Data Lakehouse?
While working with customers and IBMers on data processing projects (to keep it as broad as possible), I often hear the talk about bronze, silver, and gold standards. These standards sometimes refer to the systems the data is stored in in terms of reliability, availability, performance, bandwith, and more. The IBM mainframe in a geographically dispersed parallel sysplex configuration may be considered such a gold standard. Lately, bronze / silver /gold standards are more frequently heard in the context of Data Lakehouse architectures and data sources or data zones. So, what is bronze, silver, and gold when discussing data and data lakehouse?

Get ready for IDUG North America Db2 Tech Conference

In about a week (June 23-27), IDUG North America Db2 Tech Conference is going to start. Are you already registered and will attend either on-site or virtually? Agendas for on-site attendees and the virtual participants have been posted.

Follow-up on resource reclamation: Search resources and Code Engine commands

Restore IBM Cloud Code Engine projects
Some longer I time ago, I wrote about resource reclamation in IBM Cloud. When you delete a resource, it is not immediately gone but moved into a kind of trash bin. It gives you some days to reconsider or to recover from accidents. Today, I am going to share some additional tips & tricks.
