    Azure Data Factory is a cloud-based integration service that orchestrates and automates the movement and transformation of data. It works heavily on the data that you store.

    Input Datasets

    This represents the collection of data within the data stores. The data passes through a pipeline for processing.


    A pipeline consists of a group of activities, such as:

    Data movement activity Data transformation activity using: procedures Hive Output Datasets

    After the data is transformed into the pipeline, we get an output dataset. Here, we get a structured form of data.

    Linked Services

    The data from output datasets passes to linked services, such as:

    Azure Data Lake Block storage SQL

    Linked services contain information needed to connect to external sources. This is similar to the concept of a connection string in an SQL Server, where you define the source and destination of your data.
