Integrate Azure Synapse Analytics with Microsoft Azure SQL Database
About Azure Synapse Analytics
Azure Synapse Analytics is the next incarnation of Azure SQL Data Warehouse from Microsoft. Like SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Synapse Analytics is a cloud-based, relational data warehouse system with MPP (massively parallel processing), virtually unlimited scaling capacity, and the power to process and store petabytes of data. The difference is that Azure Synapse Analytics has added business intelligence, machine learning, and other advanced features to its data warehousing profile. Microsoft has also boosted the platform’s capacity to ingest, transform, manage, and process larger volumes of relational and non-relational data faster and more efficiently.
About Microsoft Azure SQL Database
Microsoft Azure is a public cloud computing service designed for building, testing, launching, and managing applications and services via Microsoft-managed data centers. Through its platform-as-a-service (PaaS), software-as-a-service (SaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (Iaas) offerings, Microsoft Azure integrates with a wide range of programming languages and tools. In addition to working with Microsoft’s proprietary software and systems, Azure is compatible with third-party solutions, including Linux. As an extremely popular cloud services platform, many businesses and enterprises have used Microsoft Azure to migrate their computer systems to the cloud and eliminate the costs and staff requirements needed to maintain physical onsite servers.
