Azure Data Lake Storage (ADLS) Gen 2 is a single data lake store that combines the performance and innovation of ADLS with the scale and rich feature set of Azure Blob Storage. It provides a Hadoop compatible file system interface for Blob Storage optimized for Hadoop and Spark. Features include folder hierarchy, fine grained ACLs and very high scale coupled with the Hot, Cool, and Archive tiers. In this talk, we dive into the architecture of ADLS Gen 2, show demos on how you can get started with it today as well as covering partner integration with Cloudera, MAPR, Hortonworks, and more.
