SSIS In Azure

Richie Lee reports that SQL Server Integration Services is now available as a service in Azure:

I’ve written about it elsewhere in greater depth, but here are the headlines:

  • It makes use of SSIS Scale Out, which was released as part of SQL Server 2017.

  • Although it is based on SSIS Scale Out, you can’t actually configure SSIS Scale Out to run on the instance. If this confuses you then read my in-depth post.

  • SSISDB is installed in either SQL Azure or on a Managed Instance.

  • You don’t have to create Integration Services Catalog/SSISDB yourself; it is done for you. So that annoying key management is no longer a problem.

Richie’s got more to say on the topic, so check out the highlights and then his in-depth post.

Azure Data Factory v2 And Decompression

With this functionality ADF should change the extension of the file when it is decompressed so 1234_567.csv.gz would become 1234_567.csv however, I’ve noticed that this doesn’t happen in all cases.
