Today we are excited to launch the ability to ingest data from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) into Azure Data Explorer (ADX) natively.
Amazon S3 is one of the most popular object storage services. AWS Customers use Amazon S3 to store data for a range of use cases, such as data lakes, websites, mobile applications, backup and restore, archive, applications, IoT devices, log analytics and big data analytics.
Azure Data Explorer (ADX) is a fully managed, high-performance, big data analytics platform that makes it easy to analyze high volumes of data in near real time. ADX supports ingesting data from a wide variety of sources such as Azure Blob, ADLS gen2, Azure Event Hub, Azure IoT Hub, and with popular open-source technologies such as Kafka, Logstash, Telegraph. With the new S3 support, customers can bring data from S3 natively without relying on complex ETL pipelines.
