Use an SLA for Azure Data Explorer clusters#

Reliability · Data Explorer · Azure.ADX.SLA

Use SKUs that include an SLA when configuring Azure Data Explorer (ADX) clusters.

Description#

When choosing a SKU for an ADX cluster you should consider the SLA that is included in the SKU. ADX clusters offer a range of offerings. Development SKUs are designed for early non-production use and do not include any SLA.

Recommendation#

Consider using a production ready SKU that includes a SLA.

Examples#

Configure with Azure template#

To deploy clusters that pass this rule:

  • Set sku.tier to Standard.
  • Set sku.name to non-development SKU such as Standard_D11_v2.

For example:

{
    "type": "Microsoft.Kusto/clusters",
    "apiVersion": "2021-08-27",
    "name": "[parameters('name')]",
    "location": "[parameters('location')]",
    "sku": {
        "name": "Standard_D11_v2",
        "tier": "Standard"
    },
    "identity": {
        "type": "SystemAssigned"
    },
    "properties": {
        "enableDiskEncryption": true
    }
}

Configure with Bicep#

To deploy clusters that pass this rule:

  name: name
  location: location
  sku: {
    name: 'Standard_D11_v2'
    tier: 'Standard'
  }
  identity: {
    type: 'SystemAssigned'
