Azure Data Share

Azure Data Share Icon

Azure Data Share does exactly what is ‘says on the box’, providing a convenient way to expose storage and databases across different Azure Tenants, without needing to copy content between source and destination using other integration resources, such as Azure Data Factory.

Creating shared connections can take two main forms, snapshot and in-place, with a variety of resources supported depending on the share type. For a snapshot share, data refreshes can be scheduled to run daily or hourly, depending on requirements.

In the context of a SQL database share, tables/views need to be selected as part of the configuration, ensuring only required datasets are pushed to the recipient.

A key advantage to the sharing capability is that for structured datasets, the source and target technologies can be different. For example, SQL database tables can be shared and written as Parquet files at the destination.
