SQL Data Warehouse
Update Type
New Feature
SQL DW now supports Azure Monitor which is a built-in monitoring service that consumes performance and health telemetry for your data warehouse. The pause feature for SQL DW enables you to reduce and manage operating costs for your data warehouse by turning off compute during times of little to no activity. We have enhanced this feature within the Azure portal by detecting active running queries and providing a warning before issuing the pause command. SQL DW is tightly integrated across many Azure services enabling you to develop an advanced modern data analytics solution. One common pattern is to leverage Azure Analysis Services (AAS) with SQL DW in a hub and spoke pattern to optimize for cost, performance, and concurrency. To enable seamless access to AAS, a tighter integration point within the Azure Portal has been enabled.
