This is a step-by-step tutorial to setting up a custom Landing Zone for Azure Synapse Analytics.

Overview

You can manage your data in your own Azure blob storage by creating a custom FileZone in Rivery, which we call Landing Zone. For up to 24 hours, your data will be stored in your container that holds objects. An object is a file and any metadata that describes that file.


Prerequisites

If you're new to Azure Blob Storage, start with the Microsoft documentation and create a new Azure Account with compatible permissions for updating and creating resources.
