Let's take a look at what's new at Datafuse Labs & Databend each week.

External Location for Fuse Engine

Problems often encountered in the past with cloud services include the fact that data files are often invisible to the user, making it very difficult to migrate back locally. In addition, there is a lack of tools to help exchange data in the Big Data ecosystem and to better exploit the value in the data. In response to this need Databend has proposed an ISSUE: External Location for Fuse Engine.

This is part of the plan for Databend as Lakehouse and once this support is complete, users will be able to use Databend to manage the lifecycle of their data and perform data governance tasks, as well as having access to key features including Data Share and Time Travel.

Databend Automated Testing with SQLancer

Databend Automated Testing with SQLancer is one of the Databend community's projects in the Open Source Promotion Plan 2022. @hanyisong helped us with this important work, which has now been merged into sqlancer/sqlancer repository.

SQLancer (Synthesized Query Lancer) is a tool to automatically test Database Management Systems (DBMS) in order to find logic bugs in their implementation.
