Hi all,

As Microsoft announced gen 1 retirement , can anyone give insight regarding support for azure data lake analytics to gen 1 after feb 2024?
For gen 2 , ADLA still not supporting abfs driver fl, is there any plan for giving gen 2 storage support to ADLA service?
One of our enterprise customer is using this service and we would like to know path going forward and how much we can depend on this native azure service for enterprise solutions .


Thanks

Thanks for your query, ADLA (Azure Data Lake Analytics) is not supported on ADLS Gen2 today, given we are not investing in ADLA, we do recommend customers migrate ADLA to an alternate framework such as Azure HDInsight, Azure Synapse Analytics or Azure Databricks. If you are interested in learning more, kindly email us at ADLSGen1toGen2MigrationQA@service.microsoft.com.

Could you please confirm that I understand correctly then: after the retirement on Feb. 29, ADLA will be completely non-functional, since it requires gen1 to operate?

    Blob Storage to support analytics workloads. ADLS Gen2 not only matches all the
    capabilities provided by ADLS Gen1 for analytics workloads but is also builds on the

    available in the Public Cloud or on-premises.

    ADLS Gen2 is also integrated with all the newer Azure Analytics offerings such as
    Azure Synapse Analytics, along with Azure Databricks, Azure HDInsight and Azure

    be as good or better than Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1.
