Public preview: Azure Data Lake Store
Azure Data Lake Store provides a single repository where you can simply capture data of any size, type, and speed—without forcing changes to your application as the data scales. In the store, data can be shared for collaboration with enterprise-grade security. Data Lake Store is designed for high-performance processing and analytics from HDFS applications (for example, Azure HDInsight, Azure Data Lake Analytics, Hortonworks, Cloudera, and MapR) and tools, including support for low-latency workloads. For example, data can be ingested in real time from sensors and devices for Internet of Things (IoT) solutions or from online shopping websites, and then placed into the store without the restriction of fixed limits on account or file size.
