Microsoft is extending a lifeline to developers and data scientists who may be drowning in big data stored on the company’s Azure cloud computing platform. The company has added integrations that allow Visual Studio Code (VSCode) users to explore and manage files and data objects residing in Azure Data Lake Store accounts and browse Data Lake Analytics metadata.
As its name implies, Azure Data Lake Store enables users to store trillions of objects, including petabyte-size files on big data storage service that is compliant with Apache HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System). Azure Data Lake Analytics, meanwhile, is an Apache YARN (Yet Another Resource Negotiator) service that enables large-scale analytics.
