Overview of this book

Data engineering is one of the faster growing job areas as Data Engineers are the ones who ensure that the data is extracted, provisioned and the data is of the highest quality for data analysis. This book uses various Azure services to implement and maintain infrastructure to extract data from multiple sources, and then transform and load it for data analysis. It takes you through different techniques for performing big data engineering using Microsoft Azure Data services. It begins by showing you how Azure Blob storage can be used for storing large amounts of unstructured data and how to use it for orchestrating a data workflow. You'll then work with different Cosmos DB APIs and Azure SQL Database. Moving on, you'll discover how to provision an Azure Synapse database and find out how to ingest and analyze data in Azure Synapse. As you advance, you'll cover the design and implementation of batch processing solutions using Azure Data Factory, and understand how to manage, maintain, and secure Azure Data Factory pipelines. You’ll also design and implement batch processing solutions using Azure Databricks and then manage and secure Azure Databricks clusters and jobs. In the concluding chapters, you'll learn how to process streaming data using Azure Stream Analytics and Data Explorer. By the end of this Azure book, you'll have gained the knowledge you need to be able to orchestrate batch and real-time ETL workflows in Microsoft Azure.

Configuring a firewall for an Azure storage account using the Azure portal

Storage account access can be restricted to an IP or range of IPs by whitelisting the allowed IPs in the storage account firewall. In this recipe, we'll learn to restrict access to an Azure storage account using a firewall.

Getting ready

Before you start, perform the following steps:

  1. Open a web browser and go to the Azure portal at
  2. Make sure you have an existing storage account. If not, create one using the Provisioning an Azure storage account using the Azure portal recipe.

How to do it…

To provide access to an IP or range of IPs, follow the given steps:

  1. In the Azure portal, locate and open the Azure storage account. In our case, the storage account is packtadestorage.
  2. On the storage account page, under the Settings section, locate and select Firewalls and virtual networks.
  3. As the packtadestorage account was created with public...
