Azure Data Explorer is a fully managed data analytics service that can handle large volumes of diverse data from any data source, such as websites, applications, IoT devices, and more. Azure Data Explorer makes it simple to ingest this data and enables you to do complex ad hoc queries on the data in seconds. It scales quickly to terabytes of data, in minutes, allowing rapid iterations of data exploration to discover relevant insights. It is already integrated with Apache Spark work via the Data Source and Data Sink Connector and is used to power solutions for near real-time data processing, data archiving, machine learning, etc.

Thanks to an extension to this solution, Azure Data Explorer is available as a Linked Service in Azure Synapse Analytics, allowing seamless integration between Azure Data Explorer and Apache Spark pools in Azure Synapse.
