Azure Data Lake
Azure Data Lake is an on-demand scalable cloud-based storage and analytics service. It can be divided in two connected services, Azure Data Lake Store (ADLS) and Azure Data Lake Analytics (ADLA). ADLS is a cloud-based file system that allows the storage of any type of data with any structure, making it ideal for the analysis and processing of unstructured data.
Azure Data Lake Analytics
Azure Data Lake Analytics is a parallelly-distributed job platform that allows the execution of U-SQL scripts on the Cloud. The syntax is based on SQL with a twist of C#, a general-purpose programming language first released by Microsoft in 2001.
Azure Data Lake Storage
Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1 (previously known as Azure Data Lake Store) is an enterprise-wide hyper-scale repository for big data analytics workloads. Data Lake Storage Gen1 lets you capture data of any size, type, and ingestion speed. The data is captured in a single place for operational and exploratory analytics.
Data Lake Storage Gen2 is the result of converging the capabilities of Microsoft two existing storage services, Azure Blob storage and Azure Data Lake Storage Gen1.
The Azure Building Blocks project is a command line tool (azbb) and set of Azure Resource Manager templates designed to simplify deployment of Azure resources. Users author a set of simplified parameters to specify settings for Azure resources, and the command line tool merges these parameters with best practice defaults to produce a set of final parameter files that can be deployed with the Azure Resource Manager templates.
Azure HDInsight is a cloud service that allows cost-effective data processing using open-source frameworks such as Hadoop, Spark, Hive, Storm, and Kafka, among others.
Using Apache Sqoop, we can import and export data to and from a multitude of sources, but the native file system that HDInsight uses is either Azure Data Lake Store or Azure Blob Storage.
