We are happy to announce that the public preview of capturing Event Hubs data in Delta Lake format with Stream Analytics no-code editor is now available.

 

What is Delta Lake?

Delta Lake is an open source storage layer that brings reliability to data lakes. Delta Lake extends Parquet data files with a file-based transaction log to provide ACID transactions, scalable metadata handling, and unify streaming and batch data processing. The Delta Lake transaction log has a well-defined open protocol that can be used by any system to read the log.

 

What is Stream Analytics no-code editor?

The Stream Analytics no-code editor is a drag and drop design tool that helps customers to develop the Stream Analytics jobs without writing a single line of code. The experience provides a canvas that allows you to connect to input sources to quickly see your streaming data. Then you can transform and preview it before writing to your destination of choice in Azure. To learn more, see No-code stream processing through Azure Stream Analytics | Microsoft Learn.
