Azure Synapse AnalyticsTag
Microsoft’s Azure Synapse Analytics platform is a powerful tool for storing, analyzing, and reporting on data. But as with any cloud-based service, you need to keep an eye on your costs. Fortunately, you can use Azure Automation to optimize your cost by automating certain tasks. Let’s take a closer look at how this works.
Azure Synapse (Azure SQL Data Warehouse) is a massively parallel processing (MPP) database system. The data within each synapse instance is spread across 60 underlying databases.
