Azure Data Lake OR Azure Queue storage

I suspect the correct answer is Azure Data Lake based on the Azure Queue limits: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/queues/scalability-targets

Hi Hetul,

Dan is right. Azure queue storage is only meant as a transactional measure. You add items to a queue, and when they are processed they are taken off the queue again.

In this case, Data Lake is the right storage method.
