What is a dataset with regards to SAQL?

In the documentaiton for SAQL I see that they qualify data that can be quried as being stored in a dataset. What's a dataset exactly? Is the the standard Apex data structures (Map, List, Set)? My hope is that this could play the role that LINQ plays in .Net.

The documentation I'm refering to:
A dataset isn't an Apex construct, its part of the analytics cloud (aka Salesforce wave) and is a number of measures and dimensions that can be drilled into, used to back dashboard component etc.  Essentially datasets are what you explore via the analytics cloud.
