Attunity is one of the original partners supporting Microsoft’s launch of Azure SQL Data Warehouse. As it was at that time, the goal remains to make data warehousing economically viable and accessible for everyone. Since then, this offering helped a lot of organizations who didn’t have access to data warehousing technology, spin up new analytics projects in Azure. This has helped many enterprises reduce the time to analyze large amounts of data from days to hours and even minutes.
With the launch of SQL Data Warehouse Gen2, Microsoft has introduced an automatic SSD-based caching layer to the service. The idea here is to take a blended approach of using remote storage in combination with a very fast SSD cache layer that places data with compute based on user access patterns and frequency. Microsoft also took advantage of the compute and IO throughput provided by the latest Azure hardware. This is important for organizations looking to run the most demanding SQL analytics workloads in the cloud.
