It’s been a little more than two months since we launched Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, we’re thrilled and overwhelmed by the response we’ve received from customers and partners alike. We built Azure Data Lake Storage to deliver a no-compromises data lake and the high level of customer engagement in Gen 2’s public preview confirms our approach. We have heard from customers both large and small and across a broad range of markets and industries that Gen2’s ability to provide object storage scale and cost effectiveness with a world class data lake experience is exceeding their expectations and we couldn’t be happier to hear it!
In fact we are actively partnering with leading ISV’s across the big data spectrum of platform providers, data movement and ETL, governance and data lifecycle management (DLM), analysis, presentation, and beyond to ensure seamless integration between Gen2 and their solutions. Over the next few months you will hear more about the exciting work these partners are doing with ADLS Gen2. We’ll do blog posts, events, and webinars that highlight these industry-leading solutions.
