Feature Store is an ML-specific data platform that addresses some of the key challenges we face today in feature engineering with three fundamental capabilities: (1) it uses managed data pipelines to remove struggles with pipelines as new data arrives; (2) catalogs and stores feature data to promote discoverability and collaboration of features across models; and (3) consistently serves feature data during training and interference.

Since Uber revealed their Michelangelo platform, many organizations and startups have built their own versions of a feature store; examples include Hopsworks, Feast and Tecton. We see potential in Feature Store and recommend you carefully assess it.
