Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database. Azure Data Lake (should have been Azure Data Ocean IMHO) is really omnipotent. Just look at the key capabilities of Azure Data Lake:
Native format, distributed data store. No need to pre-define schema information. From unstructured to structured data handling.
Kilo bytes to Exa bytes OK. Ready for read/write.
At any scale
Scale to match your needs; high volume data handling of small writes and low latency. Can Aaddress near real-time web analytics scenarios.
Works out-of-the box with Hadoop including services such as HD Insight
Full integration with Azure Active Directory
