Working with Synapse Link for SQL

Steve Howard gives us an overview of a preview:

Azure Synapse Link for SQL greatly simplifies analytics pipelines as Microsoft manages the orchestration process for you. Since being announced at Microsoft Build, many of you have had the opportunity to try it out in a POC so now seems like a good time to take a deep dive on some implementation aspects that may save you time later.

This blog post will assume you have experience with Synapse dedicated SQL pools and that you have some basic working knowledge of Synapse Link for SQL from following the quick start or from doing an initial POC.

Looking at this, I am a bit concerned about what it means to sync actively changing tables, especially ones large enough to benefit from being in a dedicated SQL pool. “Just reload all the data” may be the right answer but it doesn’t sound like a convenient one.
