Updated: 11 November, 2019
Customers can use Azure Data Share to easily and securely share big data stored in Azure with other organisations. As a fully managed service, Azure Data Share does not require infrastructure to set up and it enables efficient sharing of big data. With just a few clicks, data professionals can share both structured and unstructured data from a variety of Azure data sources. Azure Data Share provides full visibility into data-sharing relationships, including what data is shared and who it is shared with. Use snapshot-based sharing to provide a copy of the data and in-place sharing (preview) to enable access to data at source.
