Delta lake on Databricks and OS Delta are identical in terms of API compatibility and functionality. The main differences are feature of life improvements. An example for AWS is an S3 commit service that Databricks manages which helps with eventual consistency limitations on S3.

Delta Lake on Databricks has added runtime optimizations of the Delta Engine that further enhance the performance and scale of the open source Delta Format. In additional you also get access to a whole host of capabilities available on the Databricks Platform.
