Azure Environment

I am new to Azure Cloud Platform and I have below questions. These questions might be very basic questions

Can we have Blob Storage and Azure data lake Store in same environment, meaning do/can clients use Blob Storage and Azure data lake Store at same time or will they have to Pick only 1 store

What is the process of loading the data into Azure environment from on premise SQL instance?  Do we use SSIS or Data Factory to Azure DB then from there to Azure data wherehouse and then to Blob Store or Azure data lake. Is this the right approach?

How is Azure data factory different than SSIS other it being a cloud feature.  I was trying to see the advantages of ADF over SSIS

What is primary advantage of ADLA?

(1) 1st question: Blob storage and ADLS are two different components altogether. You can land the files in both locations. The disadvantage of blob is that you cannot provide folder level access to any individual, you can share the container access with anyone and once that access is given, the said person will have access to all the folders inside it, unlike ADLS which has folder level access. Microsoft is releasing the new ADLS v2 combining the features of blob storage and ADLS.
(2) Using Blob as a file source in SSIS can help you to migrate the on-premises SSIS packages to Azure. I didn't understood your approach, why Azure DB and Azure DW both are used?
(3) Using SSIS in Azure environment is not a thing I would recommend as it will have many migration issues. Try to consider data factory if you are not making any complex transformations in SSIS packages. Currently ADF supports COPY activity and CUSTOM activity.
