This section shows how to work with data in Databricks.

You can import data into Databricks File System (DBFS), a distributed file system mounted into a Databricks workspace and available on Databricks clusters.

You can create tables directly from imported data and the table schema is stored in the default Databricks internal metastore. You also can configure and use external metastores.

You can also use a wide variety of Apache Spark data sources to access data in your notebooks.
