Azure Data Lake Store and Azure Data Lake Analytics

Azure Data Lake Store is an enterprise-wide hyper-scale repository for big data analytics workloads. Azure Data Lake enables you to capture the data of any size, type, and ingestion speed in one single place for operational and exploratory analytics. Azure Data Lake Analytics is an on-demand analytics job service to simplify big data analytics. You can focus on writing, running, and managing jobs rather than on operating distributed infrastructure.
