Azure SQL Data Warehouse Overview

Microsoft recently announced the SQL Data Warehouse Platform as a Service (PaaS) feature for Microsoft Azure. This platform provides an on-demand Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) platform for build data warehouses that can handle from 10s of TBs of data up to PBs. This session will provide an overview of SQL Data Warehouse with a discussion on the value that Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) brings to your data warehouse and why the cloud may be the best platform for your solution. In this session, we’ll also dig into the capabilities of SQL Data Warehouse and compare those to other offerings. • Scale from terabytes to petabytes • Save on costs through on-demand scale • Take advantage of architecture designed for scalable performance • Gain a cloud integrated data warehouse solution
