AZURE BI SOLUTIONS
Azure Data Factory (ADF) is a service that is available in the Microsoft Azure ecosystem. This service allows the orchestration of different data loads and transfers in Azure. Azure data factories are composed of the following components:
Linked services: Connectors to the various storage and compute services. For example, we can have a pipeline that will use the following artifacts:
HDInsight cluster on demand: Access to the HDInsight compute service to run a Hive script that uses HDFS external storage Azure Blob storage/SQL Azure: As the Hive job runs, this will retrieve the data from Azure and copy it to an SQL Azure database Datasets: There are layers for the data used in pipelines. A dataset uses a linked service.
