The Emerging Architectures for Modern Data Infrastructure

The graphic above is rather...involved...but it's quite good / useful. It's actually the superset of all modern technology architecture diagrams that exist today, the superset of all possible "how we built our data stack" posts. The folks at A16Z have been working on this post for ~6 months at this point and the hard work has paid off.

What I particularly find valuable is the separation of the total stack into separate reference architectures for BI and AI/ML, while recognizing that it's also possible to combine those two into a single cohesive platform. Having such a clear depiction of how these pieces fit together is incredibly useful.
