The industry's first enterprise class cloud data warehouse! Previously, if you wanted to run SQL services you had to roll-out your own SQL Server on raw infrastructure as a service. With SQL Data Warehouse Service, a database can be created on Azure, giving you great benefits in terms of scalability, performance, and cost savings.
Azure SQL Data Warehouse
- Uses massive parallel processing (MPP) architecture and columnstore indexes for performance.
- Pay for what you need when you need it.
- Secure infrastructure deployment with no maintenance costs.
- Polybase enables you to query non-relational data held in Azure blob storage or in Hadoop's File System (HDFS) as though it is a regular table.
