CDAP vs Azure Data Factory: What are the differences?

Developers describe CDAP as "Open source virtualization platform for Hadoop data and apps". Cask Data Application Platform (CDAP) is an open source application development platform for the Hadoop ecosystem that provides developers with data and application virtualization to accelerate application development, address a broader range of real-time and batch use cases, and deploy applications into production while satisfying enterprise requirements. On the other hand, Azure Data Factory is detailed as "Create, Schedule, & Manage Data Pipelines". It is a service designed to allow developers to integrate disparate data sources. It is a platform somewhat like SSIS in the cloud to manage the data you have both on-prem and in the cloud.

CDAP and Azure Data Factory can be primarily classified as "Big Data" tools.

Some of the features offered by CDAP are:

  • Streams for data ingestion
  • Reusable libraries for common Big Data access patterns
  • Data available to multiple applications and different paradigms

On the other hand, Azure Data Factory provides the following key features:

  • Real-Time Integration
  • Parallel Processing
  • Data Chunker

CDAP and Azure Data Factory are both open source tools. It seems that CDAP with 368 GitHub stars and 195 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Azure Data Factory with 150 GitHub stars and 255 GitHub forks.

Advice on Azure Data Factory and CDAP

I have to collect different data from multiple sources and store them in a single cloud location. Then perform cleaning and transforming using PySpark, and push the end results to other applications like reporting tools, etc. What would be the best solution? I can only think of Azure Data Factory + Databricks. Are there any alternatives to #AWS services + Databricks?

Talend
It is an open source software integration platform helps you in effortlessly turning data into business insights. It uses native code generation that lets you run your data pipelines seamlessly across all cloud providers and get optimized performance on all platforms.
AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline is a web service that provides a simple management system for data-driven workflows. Using AWS Data Pipeline, you define a pipeline composed of the “data sources” that contain your data, the “activities” or business logic such as EMR jobs or SQL queries, and the “schedule” on which your business logic executes. For example, you could define a job that, every hour, runs an Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR)–based analysis on that hour’s Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) log data, loads the results into a relational database for future lookup, and then automatically sends you a daily summary email.
AWS Glue
A fully managed extract, transform, and load (ETL) service that makes it easy for customers to prepare and load their data for analytics.
Apache NiFi
