Databricks

How to share your DataBricks data with Kubit.

Introduction

With Databricks you can share your data with Kubit through the use of the Databricks feature - Delta Sharing.

Delta Sharing

Kubit can access your data in Databricks through Delta Sharing which is an open protocol developed by Databricks for secure data sharing with other organizations regardless of which computing platforms they use. A Databricks user, called a “data provider”, can use Delta Sharing to share data with a person or a group outside of their organization, called a “data recipient”. Data recipients can immediately begin working with the latest version of the shared data.
