Comparing Fabric F2 to F64

Reitse Eskens enters austerity mode:

If you’ve been having fun with Microsoft Fabric, chances are you’ve been playing around with the F64 capacity trial. This one is given to you by Microsoft for free but, since the GA data, the timer attached to it is counting down the days until you need to buy your own.

Read on to see what happens when you lose out on that sweet F64 goodness. I actually do appreciate the way that Fabric works: it’s not a linear scale of “F2 means you get 1/32 the processing power of F64.” Rather, it’s closer to time slices on a mainframe: F64 gets you a bigger slice. So if you’re a small shop without an enormous amount of data, F2 really does work pretty well.
