    I’m the first to post a useful comment. This must make me special.

    Seriously though, this would be an excellent solution to having to create a new “scratchdb” to hold my interim ETL data. This would be a major plus in simplifying design of a high performance app.

    In 2014, memory optimized tables, and delayed durability can be used help mitigate these Issues. However neither of this are always completely viable solutions. Brent’s proposed solution is likely the simplest way to achieve this with the least amount of unwanted impact. It is important to note that other platforms implement similar functionality as well. Notably Oracle.

    There are so many good things about this suggestion. I am amazed that SQL does not have the capability to turn off logging for certain tables that you define as no…

    The lack of progress / development on ADL, and especially on these key capabilities (ODBC, ORC, etc), is very depressing. I can't find any commitments in the roadmap. Development momentum seems to be entirely missing. Is ADL dead?

    Chris Bailiss commented  · 

    I'm surprised there isn't better connectivity options for ADL Analytics. Being frank, just outputting queries to files/using ADF is inadequate and means ADL can only be used by a small number of specialists in an organisation. The impressive AWS Athena has ODBC and JDBC connectivity. Based on this alone we're looking much more seriously at AWS than Azure for a whole range of DL/Analytics workloads. Athena also supports ORC/Parquet - bread and butter stuff for a DL analytics service. More generally, ADL development/enhancement is taking too long and Microsoft need to put more resources into it.

    Unplanned - makes it sounds like you have completed this, but by accident!

    Exporting/importing is a killer. It fails after running for several hours, about one in four times recently, forcing the whole thing to be done again.
    Frankly, I don't see why we should have to push the data temporarily to a logical format and then re-import it. Slow, inefficient, , inflexible, expensive.

    I am surprised there are not options that provide more fine grained control, i.e. the ability to grant unmask on specific tables (and ideally columns). "GRANT UNMASK (whole database)" is far too broad, so much so it means the old fashioned alternatives (such as SQL views) with their other disadvantages must still be used.

    More connectivity options are badly needed into Azure Data Lake Analytics. A Power BI connector that supports query folding is essential. It's disappointing that this was marked as "planned" more than two years ago and has yet to appear. Microsoft are being leapfrogged by AWS at the moment as AWS Athena is now appearing as a more mature option (supports ORC/Parquet, has ODBC and JDBC connectivity), etc.

    Our apologies for not updating this ask earlier. Renaming Blobs is on our backlog, but is unlikely to be released in the coming year. Today, you can use the “Copy Blob” API as a workaround.

    Using the Azure Files service you can address Azure Storage like a network share using the SMB2.1 protocol.  This enables usage of normal Windows API’s to rename files and directories.  You can get started with the Files service by visiting https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files.

    For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at azurestoragefeedback@microsoft.com.
