Kusto (Azure Data Explorer): Microsoft's interactive Big Data platform

RU / Day 1 / 17:15 / Track 1

Kusto is a new and rapidly growing platform for working with Big Data. A few years ago it conquered all of Microsoft and now Kusto uses literally all Azure services for data analysis. All Microsoft security and log-analytics product lines are also built on top of Kusto: Azure Monitor, Azure Sentinel, Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection, and many others. Outside of Microsoft, Kusto exists under the name Azure Data Explorer and is successfully used in e-commerce, gaming, manufacturing, automotive, and other industries.

During this session Alexander will tell what distinguishes Kusto (Azure Data Explorer) from other solutions and will show how complex live telemetry streams processing can take seconds, and open the curtain of the architecture on which Kusto is built.
