Azure Data Explorer integrates with Azure Blob Storage and Azure Data Lake Storage (Gen1 and Gen2), providing fast, cached, and indexed access to data stored in external storage. You can analyze and query data without prior ingestion into Azure Data Explorer. You can also query across ingested and uningested external data simultaneously. In this video, we will go over the key features of accessing Azure Data Lake Storage (aka ADLS) in Azure Storage Explorer (aka ASE). With the release of ADL. Storage Explorer makes use of both the Blob (blob) & Data Lake Storage Gen2 (dfs) endpoints when working with Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2. If access to Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is configured using private endpoints, ensure that two private endpoints are created for the storage account: one with the target sub-resource blob and the other with the target sub-resource dfs.

Azure Data Explorer is a fully-managed[1]big data analytics cloud platform[2][3] and). The project aim was to address Azure services' needs for fast and scalable log and telemetry analytics. Ssush12: industrial growthus history.

In 2016 it became the backend big-data and analytics service for Application Insights Analytics.[13]

The product was announced as a Public Preview product at the Microsoft Ignite 2018 conference,[14] and was announced as a generally available at the Microsoft Ignite conference of February 2019.[15]

On March 2021, 'Kusto EngineV3', Azure Data Explorer’s next generation storage and query engine, became generally available. It was designed to provide unparalleled performance for ingesting and querying telemetry, logs, and time series data. [16]

Features[edit]

Azure Data Explorer offers an optimized query language and visualizing options[17] of its data with a SQL-like language called KQL (Kusto Query Language.[18][19][20]).[7][8] KQL is used for querying only and unlike SQL, KQL can not update or delete data.[21]

Azure Data Explorer can ingest 200 MB per second per node.[14] Data Ingestion methods are pipelines and connectors to common services like Azure Event Grid or Azure Event Hub,[22] or programmatic ingestion using SDKs.

Data visualization can be achieved with tools like PowerBI[22][23] or Grafana.[24][25]

Lake

Design[edit]

Azure Data Explorer is a distributed database running on a cluster of compute nodes in Microsoft Azure. It is based on relational database management systems (RDBMS), supporting entities such as databases, tables, functions, and columns. It supports complex analytics query operators, such as calculated columns, searching and filtering or rows, group by-aggregates and joins.[26]

Azure Data Explorer Data Lake Gen2

The engine service exposes a relational data model: At the top level (cluster) there is a collection of databases, each database contains a collection of tables and stored functions. Each table defines a schema (ordered list of typed fields).

In Azure Data Explorer, unlike a typical relational database management systems (RDBMS), there are no constraints like key uniqueness, primary and foreign key.[27] The necessary relationships are established at the query time.[28] The data in Azure Data Explorer generally follows this pattern:[29] Creating Database, Ingesting data, Query the database.
