This is very much a perfect use case for NiFi. Using site to site to link up minifi or other
nifi instances is something I have done multiple times, in use cases almost exactly like yours.
Just make sure that your nifi instances that are collecting the data at your sites are able
to talk to a nifi deployed in Azure (either on IaaS or AKS).

new to Nifi but I think this might be an ideal use case based on what I am understanding from
the docs. Has anyone done anything similar to this?
