Service capabilities

Low-latency ingestion

Elastically scale to terabytes of data in minutes. This data management service offers fast, low-latency ingestion with linear scaling that supports up to 200 MB of data per second per node. Azure Data Explorer supports a growing number of ingestion methods of data from devices, applications, servers, and services for your specific use cases.

Fast read-only query with high concurrency

Get results from 1 billion records in less than a second without modifying the data or metadata. Continue refining your queries until you’ve completed your analysis. Query large amounts of structured, semi-structured (JSON-like nested types), and unstructured (free-text) data. Search for specific text terms, locate events, and perform calculations on structured data. The intuitive query language uses Microsoft IntelliSense options and color coding to help you quickly spot patterns, trends, and anomalies. Simplify data exploration with fast text indexing, column store, and time-series operations all in one service.

Time-series analysis

Create and analyze thousands of time series in seconds with near-real-time monitoring solutions and workflows. Azure Data Explorer includes native support for creation, manipulation, and analysis of multiple time series.

Fully managed data service

Focus on the data instead of the infrastructure. This powerful, fully managed data analytics service automatically scales to meet your demands. Control costs by paying only for what you need, with no upfront costs or termination fees. Take advantage of the global availability for massive scalability.

Cost-effective queries and storage

Ask unlimited questions without skyrocketing costs; you pay by the hour, not by the query. You also control your storage costs. Get the best of a persistent database to automatically add data to the table, but with the flexibility to choose a retention policy based on how long you want to store the data. For persistent storage at commodity pricing, write data to Azure Blob Storage for future use.
