"A good data lake to store your data"

What do you like best?

With ADLS we can easily define our data modelling from raw sources to refined data. It provides a great interface and a great account management together with IAM management.

Also you can use a client which abstract you from log in to your azure account all the time. Both support several file formats and IMO is the perfect tool to store your output from batch processes

What do you dislike?

Maybe we are not able to inherite r/w permissions to child folders when folder are created dinamically in a process. We had to solve this problem using the azure sdk and its connection to ADLS api.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please consider this if you wsnt to store your dsta easily and access them from different programms like IntelliJ. If you switch to Azure is a key feature you should include in your cluster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are storing our output from batch processes and we built our dsta modelling there. From this data lake data scientists can make insights and access the data simply with the adl:// url.

We think is easy to mantain and is cheaper than other solutions out there so for the data we manage is correct.

"Azure Data Lake Store - Efficient, Cheap and evolving"

What do you like best?

Great options to connect to different distributed systems. Integration with Spark was simple and quick. Having access for root folder should be looked into to improve on security aspect.

Do not use it as an alternative for Blob storage. USQL has limitations

What do you dislike?

Limitations of USQL. Root folder access is mandatory if mounting on a computing engine

Although it is good tool and very smart way to implement technology but Azure Data factory which is used to build pipelines need significant improvements in features such as allowing easy way to backfill data, also alerting is very limited.

Our app used Data Lake Store for a long time and we got lots of use out of it. It was easy to set up and query to gain insights.

The cost became really high, and when we wanted to get more fine-grained analytics it became hard to find.

Analyzing our users behaviors in our app to determine their pain points
