Components in the Feature Pack

Scenario: Processing big data

Use Azure Connector to complete following big data processing work:

  1. Use the Azure Blob Upload Task to upload input data to Azure Blob Storage.

  2. Use the Azure HDInsight Create Cluster Task to create an Azure HDInsight cluster. This step is optional if you want to use your own cluster.

  3. Use the Azure HDInsight Hive Task or Azure HDInsight Pig Task to invoke a Pig or Hive job on the Azure HDInsight cluster.

  4. Use the Azure HDInsight Delete Cluster Task to delete the HDInsight Cluster after use if you have created an on-demand HDInsight cluster in step #2.

  5. Use the Azure HDInsight Blob Download Task to download the Pig/Hive output data from the Azure Blob Storage.


Scenario: Managing data in the cloud

Use the Azure Blob Destination in an SSIS package to write output data to Azure Blob Storage, or use the Azure Blob Source to read data from an Azure Blob Storage.



Use the Foreach Loop Container with the Azure Blob Enumerator to process data in multiple blob files.
