Azure Synapse Analytics Updates

Saveen Reddy catalogs what’s new in Azure Synapse Analytics:

Quick Reuse of Spark clusters

By default, every data flow activity spins up a new Spark cluster based upon the Azure Integration Runtime (IR) configuration. Cold cluster start-up time takes a few minutes. If your pipelines contain multiple sequential data flows, you can enable a time-to-live (TTL) value, which keeps a cluster alive for a certain period of time after its execution completes. If a new job starts using the IR during the TTL duration, it will reuse the existing cluster and start up time will be greatly reduced.

Read on for the full list of updates.
