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.

Chapter 8: Deploying Azure Data Factory Pipelines

In previous chapters, we have talked about creating Azure Data Factory pipelines for different data engineering use cases, and also learned the different activities and data flows available in Azure Data Factory. In this chapter, we'll talk about continuous integration and deployment of Azure Data Factory pipelines.

We'll first learn to manually deploy pipelines across different environments, such as development, testing, and production, and will then use Azure DevOps to automate the deployment process.

In this chapter, we'll cover the following recipes:

  • Configuring the development, test, and production environments
  • Deploying Azure Data Factory pipelines using the Azure portal and ARM templates
  • Automating the Azure Data Factory pipeline deployment using Azure DevOps
