Creating a Disaster Recovery Plan for Synapse

Freddie Santos talks HA/DR with Synapse:

Many of our customers have been asking about creating a disaster recovery plan for their Synapse Workspace. In a new blog series, we will cover the basics of disaster recovery and business continuity, discussing available options and custom solutions.

In this first post, we’ll review important concepts and questions to answer before building a disaster recovery plan, including the differences between High Availability and Disaster Recovery.

The focus in this post is on the dedicated SQL pool and Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 (because people still think about Gen1?), though that’s the majority of what you’d need to think about—Spark pools and the serverless SQL pool really drive from the data lake. There’s also Data Explorer pools, which have their own storage and HA/DR capabilities.
