Chris Seferlis discusses one of the lesser known and newer Data Services in Azure, Data Explorer.

If you’re looking to run extremely fast queries over large sets of log and IoT data, this may be the right tool for you. I also discuss where it’s not a replacement for Azure Synapse or Azure Databricks, but works nicely alongside them in the overall architecture of the Azure Data Platform.

Manoj Raheja joins Lara Rubbelke (@sqlgal) to demonstrate Azure Data Explorer (ADX) and provide an overview of the service from provisioning to querying. ADX is a fast, fully managed data analytics service for real-time analysis on large volumes of streaming data. It brings together a highly performant and scalable cloud analytics service with an intuitive query language to deliver near-instant insights.
