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.
- Azure Data Lake Analytics will be retired on February 29th, 2024. Please see https://aka.ms/adlaqa for more details.
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
You should be familiar with:
- Basic SQL knowledge is helpful but not strictly required
- Completion of the Introduction to Azure Data Lake Store and Analytics course is recommended
