Pardot is a Software as a Service(SaaS) marketing automation platform by Salesforce which serves as a central location to manage your email automation, targeted email campaign, and lead management projects. Hevo accesses the data present in your Pardot environment using your SSO-enabled Salesforce login.
For creating Pipelines using this Source, Hevo provides you a fully managed BigQuery data warehouse as a possible Destination. This option remains available till the time you set up your first BigQuery Destination irrespective of any other Destinations that you may have. With the managed warehouse, you are only charged the cost that Hevo incurs for your project in Google BigQuery. The invoice is generated at the end of each month and payment is recovered as per the payment instrument you have set up. You can now create your Pipeline and directly start analyzing your Source data. Read Hevo Managed Google BigQuery.
Pardot uses the concept of domains and business units to host the data for all your projects.
Pardot Domain: Pardot provides you the following domains for hosting your different Pardot environments:

Business units allow you to partition the data by regions, products, or services. For example, if your website is hosted on a different region, you can set up one business unit for each region.
You can replicate data from any Pardot domain and business unit to the Destination system using Hevo Pipelines. You must create one Pipeline for each business unit you want to replicate data from.

Single sign-on (SSO) is enabled for the Salesforce user, as Hevo accesses your Pardot environment using Salesforce login.
