Will ADLA have any functionality whatsoever after gen1 retirement?

Thomas Price 1 Reputation point

I understand that ADLS gen2 will not be supporting ADLA. What is not clear to me is whether existing ADLA accounts will continue to function in any capacity at all after the gen1 retirement. Thanks.

    @Thomas Price Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum!

    Thanks for your query. As mentioned in the official documentation, Suggest you to migrate data to ADLS Gen2 and also upgrade to supported technologies such as Azure Databricks, Azure Synapse Analytics or Azure HDInsight


    ADLA (Azure Data Lake Analytics) is not supported on ADLS Gen2 today, given we are not investing in ADLA, we do recommend customers migrate ADLA to an alternate framework such as Azure HDInsight, Azure Synapse Analytics or Azure Databricks. If you are interested in learning more, kindly email us at ADLSGen1toGen2MigrationQA@abdou .microsoft.com

    Please see this announcement and FAQs Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1 - Retirement Announcement for more details.
