Performance b/w Managed Table and Un-Managed table

I am using Databricks in Azure. I want to mount ADLS Gen2 on Databricks and create unmanged (external) tables on the mount point. But before that I want to know which will give best performance, is it Managed table (stores data in DBFS root)or Un-managed(stores data in ADLS Gen2)?

Hi @Paramesh Malla​ , I would expect both tables to perform equally well.

Hi, depending on the network settings and speed sometimes external points are slow, otherwise the performance for both of the tables are almost same.
