Azure Time Series Insights will be retired on 31 March 2025

Published date: March 22, 2022

Because Azure Data Explorer now provides a data analytics service for streaming telemetry data, we’ll retire Azure Time Series Insights on 31 March 2025. Please transition to using Azure Data Explorer by that date.

We encourage you to make the switch sooner to gain the richer benefits of Azure Data Explorer. In addition to the current features you already use, here’s a quick comparison between Azure Time Series Insights and Azure Data Explorer:


Time Series Insights

Azure Data Explorer 

Data ingestion

Limited to 1MB/s

No limits on ingestions (scalable), 200 MB/s/node on a 16-core machine in ADX cluster.

Data Querying



Data Visualization

TSI Explorer, PBI

Beginning 31 March 2022 no new features will be released for Azure Time Series Insights. All Azure Time Series Insights instances created before the 31 March 2022 date will be supported through 31 March 2025. You can continue to use Azure Time Series Insights or transition to Azure Data Explorer.

Required action 
Review pricing and then transition to Azure Data Explorer by 31 March 2025. Use the Azure Data Explorer Cost Estimator for price estimation. After 31 March 2025, Azure Time Series Insights will not be supported.
