Unified Data Platform for all analytical workloads

Microsoft Fabric includes seven new experiences—each offering its unique set of capabilities—unified by a central data foundation, OneLake.

In Microsoft Fabric, you’ll find the following experiences:

  • Data Factory
  • Data Engineering
  • Data Warehouse
  • Data Science

Blazing-Fast Harmonized Analytics with OneLake and Direct Lake

With OneLake at its core, Microsoft Fabric unifies data disciplines and enhances collaboration across all data professionals. OneLake ties together all the tools, experiences, and technologies – and by doing so, the people working in it. It's never simpler to quickly share important work with the right coworkers!

On top of that, we have Direct Lake—the most ambitious data processing engine yet—capable of instantly rendering Power BI datasets with real-time updates to its data.

With Direct Lake, users can access live data—directly from their Power BI reports—without limiting their DAX, or worrying about performance degradation. It combines the best of all worlds: the power of VertiPaq, DirectQuery, and the Delta Lake Parquet file format.

Every corner of Microsoft Fabric is infused with innovative ingenuity, but what feels magical to me is how everything integrates to encourage collaboration among all data professionals.
