    Hello @M, Mathan ,

    Thanks for the question an using MS Q&A platform.

    Z-Ordering is a technique to co-locate related information in the same set of files. This co-locality is automatically used by Delta Lake on Azure Databricks data-skipping algorithms to dramatically reduce the amount of data that needs to be read.

    For more details, refer to Z-Ordering (multi-dimensional clustering).

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
