Hi All, since the NFS-3 has been integrated with blob storage. Now Blob Storage supports a hierarchical namespace unlike virtual file system before,hence directory level atomic operations easier. So, now there is almost no differentiation between Blob and ADLS and Blob offering cost effective solutions,where does it leaves ADLS in storage landscape except storing unlimited data. Thanks a lot.
