Azure Storage Files Data Lake client library for .NET

Server Version: 2020-04-08, 2020-02-10, 2019-12-12, 2019-07-07, and 2019-02-02

Azure Data Lake includes all the capabilities required to make it easy for developers, data scientists, and analysts to store data of any size, shape, and speed, and do all types of processing and analytics across platforms and languages. It removes the complexities of ingesting and storing all of your data while making it faster to get up and running with batch, streaming, and interactive analytics.

Getting started

Install the package

Install the Azure Storage Files Data Lake client library for .NET with NuGet:

dotnet add package Azure.Storage.Files.DataLake --version 12.0.0-preview.9

Prerequisites

You need an Azure subscription and a Storage Account to use this package.

To create a new Storage Account, you can use the Azure Portal, Azure PowerShell, or the Azure CLI. Here's an example using the Azure CLI:

az storage account create --name MyStorageAccount --resource-group MyResourceGroup --location westus --sku Standard_LRS

Key concepts

DataLake Storage Gen2 was designed to:

  • Service multiple petabytes of information while sustaining hundreds of gigabits of throughput
  • Allow you to easily manage massive amounts of data

Key Features of DataLake Storage Gen2 include:

  • Hadoop compatible access
  • A superset of POSIX permissions
  • Cost effective in terms of low-cost storage capacity and transactions
  • Optimized driver for big data analytics

A fundamental part of Data Lake Storage Gen2 is the addition of a hierarchical namespace to Blob storage. The hierarchical namespace organizes objects/files into a hierarchy of directories for efficient data access.

In the past, cloud-based analytics had to compromise in areas of performance, management, and security. Data Lake Storage Gen2 addresses each of these aspects in the following ways:

  • Performance is optimized because you do not need to copy or transform data as a prerequisite for analysis. The hierarchical namespace greatly improves the performance of directory management operations, which improves overall job performance.
  • Management is easier because you can organize and manipulate files through directories and subdirectories.
  • Security is enforceable because you can define POSIX permissions on directories or individual files.
  • Cost effectiveness is made possible as Data Lake Storage Gen2 is built on top of the low-cost Azure Blob storage. The additional features further lower the total cost of ownership for running big data analytics on Azure.

Data Lake Storage Gen2 offers two types of resources:

  • The filesystem used via 'DataLakeFileSystemClient'
  • The path used via 'DataLakeFileClient' or 'DataLakeDirectoryClient'
ADLS Gen2 Blob
Filesystem Container
Path (File or Directory) Blob

Note: This client library does not support hierarchical namespace (HNS) disabled storage accounts.

Thread safety

We guarantee that all client instance methods are thread-safe and independent of each other (guideline). This ensures that the recommendation of reusing client instances is always safe, even across threads.

Examples

Create a DataLakeServiceClient

StorageSharedKeyCredential sharedKeyCredential = new StorageSharedKeyCredential(storageAccountName, storageAccountKey);

// Create DataLakeServiceClient using StorageSharedKeyCredentials
DataLakeServiceClient serviceClient = new DataLakeServiceClient(serviceUri, sharedKeyCredential);

Create a DataLakeFileSystemClient

StorageSharedKeyCredential sharedKeyCredential = new StorageSharedKeyCredential(storageAccountName, storageAccountKey);

// Create DataLakeServiceClient using StorageSharedKeyCredentials
DataLakeServiceClient serviceClient = new DataLakeServiceClient(serviceUri, sharedKeyCredential);

// Create a DataLake Filesystem
DataLakeFileSystemClient filesystem = serviceClient.GetFileSystemClient(Randomize("sample-filesystem"));
filesystem.Create();

Create a DataLakeDirectoryClient

StorageSharedKeyCredential sharedKeyCredential = new StorageSharedKeyCredential(storageAccountName, storageAccountKey);

// Create DataLakeServiceClient using StorageSharedKeyCredentials
DataLakeServiceClient serviceClient = new DataLakeServiceClient(serviceUri, sharedKeyCredential);

// Get a reference to a filesystem named "sample-filesystem-append" and then create it
DataLakeFileSystemClient filesystem = serviceClient.GetFileSystemClient(Randomize("sample-filesystem-append"));
filesystem.Create();

// Create
DataLakeDirectoryClient directory = filesystem.GetDirectoryClient(Randomize("sample-file"));
directory.Create();

Create a DataLakeFileClient

Create DataLakeFileClient from a DataLakeDirectoryClient

// Create a DataLake Directory
DataLakeDirectoryClient directory = filesystem.CreateDirectory(Randomize("sample-directory"));
directory.Create();

// Create a DataLake File using a DataLake Directory
DataLakeFileClient file = directory.GetFileClient(Randomize("sample-file"));
file.Create();

Create DataLakeFileClient from a DataLakeFileSystemClient

// Create a DataLake Filesystem
DataLakeFileSystemClient filesystem = serviceClient.GetFileSystemClient(Randomize("sample-filesystem"));
filesystem.Create();

// Create a DataLake file using a DataLake Filesystem
DataLakeFileClient file = filesystem.GetFileClient(Randomize("sample-file"));
file.Create();

Appending Data to a DataLake File

// Create a file
DataLakeFileClient file = filesystem.GetFileClient(Randomize("sample-file"));
file.Create();

// Append data to the DataLake File
file.Append(File.OpenRead(sampleFilePath), 0);
file.Flush(SampleFileContent.Length);

Reading Data from a DataLake File

Response<FileDownloadInfo> fileContents = file.Read();

Listing/Traversing through a DataLake Filesystem

foreach (PathItem pathItem in filesystem.GetPaths())
{
    names.Add(pathItem.Name);
}

Set Permissions on a DataLake File

// Create a DataLake file so we can set the Access Controls on the files
DataLakeFileClient fileClient = filesystem.GetFileClient(Randomize("sample-file"));
fileClient.Create();

// Set the Permissions of the file
PathPermissions pathPermissions = PathPermissions.ParseSymbolicPermissions("rwxrwxrwx");
fileClient.SetPermissions(permissions: pathPermissions);

Set Access Controls (ACLs) on a DataLake File

// Create a DataLake file so we can set the Access Controls on the files
DataLakeFileClient fileClient = filesystem.GetFileClient(Randomize("sample-file"));
fileClient.Create();

// Set Access Control List
IList<PathAccessControlItem> accessControlList
    = PathAccessControlExtensions.ParseAccessControlList("user::rwx,group::r--,mask::rwx,other::---");
fileClient.SetAccessControlList(accessControlList);

Get Access Controls (ACLs) on a DataLake File

// Get Access Control List
PathAccessControl accessControlResponse = fileClient.GetAccessControl();

Rename a DataLake File

DataLakeFileClient renamedFileClient = fileClient.Rename("sample-file2");

Rename a DataLake Directory

DataLakeDirectoryClient renamedDirectoryClient = directoryClient.Rename("sample-directory2");

Get Properties on a DataLake File

// Get Properties on a File
PathProperties filePathProperties = fileClient.GetProperties();

Get Properties on a DataLake Directory

// Get Properties on a Directory
PathProperties directoryPathProperties = directoryClient.GetProperties();

Troubleshooting

All File DataLake service operations will throw a RequestFailedException on failure with helpful ErrorCodes. Many of these errors are recoverable.

Next steps
