A few data platform announcements yesterday at Microsoft Build that I wanted to blog about.
The biggest one is Azure Synapse Analytics is now available in public preview! You can immediately log into your Azure portal and use it. While in the Azure portal, search for “Synapse” and you will see “Azure Synapse Analytics (workspaces preview)”. Choose that and then click “Create Synapse workspace” (you first may need to register the resource provider “Microsoft.Synapse” in your subscription – see Azure resource providers and types).
James also covers other highlights, including Cosmos DB and Azure SQL Database Edge.
