Serverless data processing in Azure
In order to leverage the full scalability of the cloud, serverless technologies have become increasingly popular. However, the technology that was built with scalable application development in mind, is now slowly also penetrating the data world. So, what data services provide “serverless” options, how can these serverless options be utilized and what does that mean for example for modern data applications?
In this session the attendees will learn different patterns for working with data using serverless technology in Azure and understand in which cases, serverless might offer an advantage.
We will talk about data batch processing with Azure Data Factory and Azure Functions, about SQL and Synapse serverless options, about data straming and about Logic Apps.
These tools can be one of the building blocks for a modern data plattform architecture, so learn when and how to use them for maximum benefit.
