Big Data Analytics on Azure
Ready for the real environment experience?
Big data and analytics in Azure can help you gain insights into your data and deliver better experiences. This Lab demonstrates using two of Azure's big data services:
- Azure Data Lake Store for storing massive amounts of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data, and
- Azure Data Lake Analytics for massively parallel analysis of data stored in Data Lake Store.
You will use Data Lake Analytics' U-SQL big data query language to transform website search logs stored in a Data Lake Store and discover which searches take longer than a threshold to complete.
Upon completion of this Lab you will be able to:
- Store data in Azure Data Lake Stores
- Submit jobs to Azure Data Lake Analytics
- Understand the trade-off between cost and performance in Azure Data Lake Analytics
- Explain basic U-SQL queries
