Hi @Phani1

  1. Topology:

  2. Centralized Workspaces:

    • Centralized workspaces are designed for collaboration and resource sharing. They allow multiple users and teams to work together within a single workspace.
    • Key features:
      • Shared Resources: Users can collaborate on notebooks, clusters, libraries, and other assets.
      • Unified Access Control: Administrators can manage permissions centrally.
      • Single Pane of Visibility: All resources are accessible from one place.
      • Efficient Resource Utilization: Shared clusters and libraries reduce redundancy.
    • Use cases: Collaborative data exploration, team projects, and shared development environments.
  3. Federated Workspaces:

    • Federated workspaces enable cross-workspace querying using Lakehouse Federation.
    • Features:
    • Use cases: Analyzing data from multiple workspaces, combining results, and maintaining data locality.

Remember that Databricks provides flexibility, allowing you to choose the workspace type that best suits your needs. If you have specific use cases or need further details, feel free to ask! 😊🚀34
