A Data Lake is a collection of raw data that is structured, semi-structured, or unstructured from any type of source. The raw nature of the data requires the skills of data engineers and data scientists.
Both a data warehouse and data lake store your data, but the main difference is when that data is organized and analyzed. Raw and unstructured data goes into a data lake, and then data can be selected and organized as needed. A data warehouse processes the information and organizes it into a single schema before it is stored. Then, when data is pulled, the analysis is done on the cleansed data in the warehouse.
