Azure Event Hubs Archive is now in public preview, providing efficient micro-batch processing

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Of the many key scenarios for Event Hubs, are long term data archival and downstream micro-batch processing. Customers typically use compute (Event Processor Host/Event Receivers) or Stream Analytics jobs to perform these archival or batch processing tasks. These along with other custom downstream solutions involve significant overhead with regards to scheduling and managing batch jobs. Why not have something out-of-the-box that solves this problem? Well, look no further – there’s now a lovely, nifty feature called Event Hubs Archive!
