Hosted Feature Service - Two Files - Why?

When I upload a shapefile or file geodatabase into ArcGIS Online, I see two new files in My Content each with the same name, but different "Types".  One is labeled Feature Layer and the other is labeled Shapefile or File Geodatabase depending on the file type uploaded.

 

The Feature Layer is used in my map, but I don't know what the other file is used for.  Can I delete the other item or is it necessary to have for the Feature Layer?
