ADLS Gen 2 - SLA for EPS(Events Per Seconds) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    We are upgrading to ADLS Gen 2 and we are building an API to push events into ADLS Gen 2. 

    Can you please point me to ADLS Gen 2 SLA document, which tells about how many Events Per Seconds (EPS) an ADLS Gen 2 account can handle.

    This will help us fine tune our APIs, identify how many Gen 2 accounts we need and the associated cost.

  • Hi there,

    Please clarify - by events, do you mean events captured from event hubs ?

  • no its not related to EventHub at all, my question is when we use the product, how the product is suppose to behave? 

    for example when we write data into ADLS Gen 2 account, how much data ADLS Gen 2 Account can handle. is it based on transactions(events) or based on data volume? 

    Even more specific example: lets say I have an API which writes data to Gen 2, how many transactions\data am I expecting Gen 2 will store successfully, what are the settings should I consider? what will be the cost? etc

    I am looking for a SLA for that. Please point me to a document
