It’s been a little more than two months since we launched Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, we’re thrilled and overwhelmed by the response we’ve received from customers and partners alike. We built Azure Data Lake Storage to deliver a no-compromises data lake and the high level of customer engagement in Gen 2’s public preview confirms our approach. We have heard from customers both large and small and across a broad range of markets and industries that Gen2’s ability to provide object storage scale and cost effectiveness with a world class data lake experience is exceeding their expectations and we couldn’t be happier to hear it!
Partner enablement in Gen2
In fact we are actively partnering with leading ISV’s across the big data spectrum of platform providers, data movement and ETL, governance and data lifecycle management (DLM), analysis, presentation, and beyond to ensure seamless integration between Gen2 and their solutions.
Over the next few months you will hear more about the exciting work these partners are doing with ADLS Gen2. We’ll do blog posts, events, and webinars that highlight these industry-leading solutions.
In fact, I am happy to announce our first joint Gen2 engineering-ISV webinar with Attunity on September 18th, Real-time Big Data Analytics in the Cloud 101: Expert Advice from the Attunity and Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 Teams.
Real-time analytics and ADLS Gen2
Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is at the core of Azure Analytics workflows. One of the workflows that has generated significant interest is for real-time analytics. With the explosive growth of data generated from sensors, social media, business apps, many organizations are looking for ways to drive real-time insights and orchestrate immediate action using cloud analytic services. As the diagram below indicates, multiple Azure services exist to provide an end to end solution for driving real-time analytics workflows.
Many of our customers are just getting started with building their real-time analytics cloud architectures. We’re excited to partner with Attunity to help customers learn more about real-time analytics, data lakes and how you can quickly move from evaluation to execution.
Attunity is a recognized leader in data integration and real-time data capture with deep skills in real-time data management. They are also a Microsoft Gold partner. In our webinar, we’ll explore the following questions:
- Why is real-time data important for driving business insights?

- How can you use change data capture (CDC) technology to efficiently transfer data to the cloud?
- How can you build sophisticated analytic workflows quickly?
- Why is Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 the best data lake for real-time analytics?
We work with a number of amazing partners. We’re excited about the prospect of showcasing Attunity solutions and helping customers get to insights faster in their big data analytics workflows using Azure and partner solutions.
