Microsoft Fabric is an all-in-one analytics solution that encompasses everything from data movement to data science, Real-Time Analytics, and business intelligence. This solution offers a suite of services such as data lake, data engineering, and data integration, all in one location, simplifying your analytics needs and eliminating the need to juggle different services from multiple vendors.
"Microsoft Fabric is an end-to-end analytics SaaS (Software as a Service) solution with full-service capabilities available depending on the "Product Experience" or "Persona" that you want to encapsulate in the Power BI Service. This video explores and discusses those personas to determine where you want to work in Microsoft Fabric."
Microsoft Fabric is built on a Software as a Service (SaaS) foundation and includes components from Power BI, Azure Synapse, and Azure Data Explorer. These components are then integrated into a single environment, providing various tailored user experiences. Examples of these experiences are Data Engineering, Data Factory, Data Science, Data Warehouse, Real-Time Analytics, and Power BI.
Key components of Microsoft Fabric include:
Data Engineering: Provides a top-tier Spark platform for large scale data transformation.
Data Factory: Combines the simplicity of Power Query with the scale and power of Azure Data Factory.
Data Science: Enables the building, deploying, and operationalizing of machine learning models seamlessly within your Fabric experience.
Data Warehouse: Offers industry-leading SQL performance and scale, with a fully separate compute from storage.
Real-Time Analytics: Best in class engine for observational data analytics.
Power BI: Ensures that business owners can access all the data in Fabric quickly and intuitively for decision-making.
Microsoft Fabric also integrates the OneLake and lakehouse architecture across the enterprise. OneLake is built on top of ADLS (Azure Data Lake Storage) Gen2, and it serves as a single, unified storage system for all developers, allowing for data discovery and sharing while enforcing policy and security settings. OneLake is designed to allow instant mounting of existing PaaS storage accounts into OneLake with the Shortcut feature, making data sharing between users and applications easier.
Overall, Microsoft Fabric is an implementation of data mesh architecture aimed at turning large and complex data repositories into actionable workloads and analytics.
