Lessons Learned from Operating an Exabyte Scale Data Lake at Microsoft

Data lakes are the new best thing. Companies want to transform their business by harnessing the power of data in their data lake to get transformational insights and leapfrog the competition. Our team at Microsoft has operated possibly the world’s largest data lake for more than a decade. In this session, attendees will learn about our journey in building and operating a multi-exabyte data lake, what users care about, and what went well and what didn’t go so well. Attendees will also learn about what has changed since we started our journey, and how we’ve adapted as the big data ecosystem has evolved.
