Getting Started with Atlas Data Lake

Beta

The Atlas Data Lake is available as a Beta feature. The product and the corresponding documentation may change at any time during the Beta stage. For support, see Atlas Support.

Overview

Atlas Data Lake is MongoDB’s solution for querying data stored in low cost S3 buckets using the MongoDB Query Language. This allows analytics applications to make use of archived data for their data processing needs.

This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating and connecting to a Data Lake in Atlas, configuring databases and collections from files stored in S3, and running MongoDB Query Language (MQL) operations.
