Azure Synapse is now generally available. Check out the updates with the release and a first look at additional capabilities coming soon. If you're new to Azure Synapse, it's Microsoft's limitless analytics platform that brings together enterprise data warehousing and big data processing into a single managed environment with no systems integration required. John Macintyre, engineering lead for Azure Synapse, joins host Jeremy Chapman to provide details on the newest updates, and walk through how a grocery retailer might use new capabilities in Synapse to plan inventory levels.
Preview capabilities in the Synapse workspace now ready for production workloads:
• Azure Synapse Link, the first cloud-native HTAP solution.
• SQL Serverless, now generally available.
• For analytics with Spark, we've built performance optimizations for our implementation of Apache spark.
New capabilities, formerly in preview, are now available and fully supported:
• New knowledge center gives you pipeline templates to bring data in sample scripts for analytics, automation, and notebooks.
• Bring data into Synapse for advanced analytics and to enrich that data in code-free ways and apply your Azure machine-learning models.
Added for data admins:
• Connect to your data and storage securely through managed private endpoints.
• You no longer have to manage subnets, worry about IP ranges, or configure private endpoints. You don't need deep networking knowledge.
