Interested in learning how Azure SQL Data Warehouse outperforms the competition? In a recent webinar, Bob Rubocki discusses the latest enhancements with Azure SQL Data Warehouse which have made it up-to 14x faster and up to 94% cheaper than other major cloud data warehouse solutions.
The presentation begins with an overview of what Azure SQL Data Warehouse is and some of the key features, such as:
- Massive Parallel Processing
- Separation of compute nodes from the data storage which means we can easily scale the compute up/down as needed
- Better flexibility and cost management
- Designed to work on massive data sets and for analytic and aggregate query loads
Next, Bob compares Azure SQL Data Warehouse to some other competitors in the cloud scale analytics market. This comparison is focused on a benchmark study completed by GigaOm in which they did some performance and cost comparison of some of these products in the market.
The webinar also covers what’s new within Azure SQL Data Warehouse with the release of Gen 2 and what Microsoft is doing to develop Azure SQL Data Warehouse to make it more compelling than ever to adopt it over the competition. There’s also a demo of what’s new within the platform.
