    Git was designed for managing software development projects and for versioning text/code files. Therefore, Git doesn’t handle large files. Git released Git LFS (Large File System) to overcome large file versioning, which is better than Git, but fails when scaling. Also, both Git and Git LFS are not optimized for data science workflow. To overcome this challenge, many powerful tools emerged in recent years, such as DVC, Delta Lake, LakeFS, and more.

  • LakeFS Turns 1 and Raises 15M in a Week: (Enable Git for Large-Scale Data Lakes)

    Hello HN!

    We're Oz and Einat, co-founders of lakeFS (, an open-source project that allows the creation of performant git-like repositories over an object store (i.e. S3).

    Prior to starting lakeFS we were VP of R&D and CTO at SimilarWeb, a (now-public) Israeli web analytics company whose business model is based on the collection and analysis of the internet's activity.

    Recovering from a pernicious error in a million S3 files shouldn't require a full day or even week of work to fix… instead let's make it an instantaneous revert operation to a previous commit.

    The challenge to implement this type of functionality is a technical one, one we took it upon ourselves to solve. It's been 1 year since the first public commit on lakeFS and we've now raised a $15M Series A to continue building and improving our vision.

    We've evolved a ton in the past year, completely refactoring the data model to remove dependency on Postgres. Fittingly, we now use rocksDB on the object store to persist the metadata lakeFS manages (with the added benefit of simplifying the installation process). Check out the roadmap to follow our progress on building out native integrations with other important technologies in the open data stack such as Spark, Hive Metastore, and Delta Lake.

    We encourage you to check out our Github repo: ( and documentation pages: (

    We're proud of how far we've come, but know there's lots more work to do. Please do let us know your thoughts!
