Azure Data Lake

Azure Data Lake
What is Azure Data Lake? It consists of two parts: Azure Data Lake Store (ADLS) to almost effortlessly store all your structured and unstructured (big) data and Azure Data Lake Analytics (ADLA) to easily analyse that same data with U-SQL. U-SQL is a mix of T-SQL and C# and probably easier to learn for T-SQL developers then other analytical languages such as Hive and Pig.

Besides storing big data and doing analytics, Data Lake could also be useful for traditional data warehouses. Storing data in ADLS is not very expensive, which makes it interesting to store staging files in an ADLS container and then use Polybase to move the data into an Azure Data Warehouse.
