I’m pleased to announce that the SSIS team at Microsoft have now made available to the public a SSIS feature pack that’ll allow on-premise access to Azure blob and HDInsight. Here are the links to download and install the feature pack for SSIS 2012 and 2014:
Here are the functionalities that this feature pack provides:
- Download and upload files to Azure Storage Blob container.
- Create and delete Azure HDInsight cluster.
- Loop over blobs in an Azure Storage container.
- Call Hive and Pig tasks.
Other functionalities will be integrated in future versions of the feature pack. For me, being a big fan of big data and cloud technology, I think that this is a great new. And that’ll certainly help organizations to support hybrid data movement scenarios (on-prem and cloud data).
In the next few days, I’ll dig into each of these feature pack functionalities in future articles.
