1.Azure Synapse Analytics
Azure Synapse Analytics is the next generation of Azure SQL Data Warehouse. It lets you load any number of data sources – both relational and non-relational databases, whether on-premise or in the Azure cloud.
Databricks lets you set up managed Apache Spark clusters with auto-scaling and auto-termination, eliminating the complexity of setting up Spark in your local data centre.
HDInsight comes with the full set of popular Hadoop tooling, including Apache Spark, Apache Kafka, HBase, Hive, and Storm. It provides enterprise-scale infrastructure in the form of monitoring, security, compliance, and high availability via Azure redundancy options.
4.Azure Data Factory
Azure Data Factory is an Extract Transform Load (ETL) service. ETL is a term from the old days of large-scale processing of structured data.An ETL process takes a structured database, cleans it, and converts the data into a format that is suitable for analysis
5.Azure Machine Learning
This is a huge library of pre-packaged, pre-trained machine learning algorithms. It also provides an environment for consuming these algorithms and applying them to real-world tasks
6.Azure Stream Analytics
Azure Stream Analytics lets you build an end-to-end pipeline for streaming events. It is based on serverless technology. Stream Analytics lets you define an analytics pipeline for streaming data, with data processing defined using SQL syntax, and go-to production in minutes
7.Data Lake Analytics
Azure Data Lake Analytics lets you develop data transformation programs using a variety of languages including U-SQL (a special language provided by Microsoft that combines the benefits of SQL and C#), Python, .NET, and R. It can process petabytes of data.
8.Azure Analysis Services
Azure Analysis Services can be set up using the Azure Resource Manager, which combines data from multiple sources and creates one trusted semantic model. It allows you to develop high-performance BI solutions with secured access and fast time to delivery.
