Azure Databricks Architecture

  • Azure Databricks is structured to enable secure cross-functional team collaboration while keeping a significant amount of backend services managed by Azure Databricks so you can stay focused on your data science, data analytics, and data engineering tasks.
  • Azure Databricks operates out of a control plane and a data plane.

  • The control plane includes the backend services that Azure Databricks manages in its own Azure account. Notebook commands and many other workspace configurations are stored in the control plane and encrypted at rest.

  • The data plane is managed by your Azure account and is where your data resides. This is also where data is processed.
