Databricks contributes Delta Lake to the Linux Foundation

The Databricks-led open source Delta Lake project is getting a new home and a new governance model at the Linux Foundation.

In April, the San Francisco-based data science and analytics vendor open sourced the Delta Lake project, in an attempt to create an open community around its data lake technology. After months of usage and feedback from a community of users, Databricks decided that a more open model for development, contribution and governance was needed and the Linux Foundation was the right place for that.
