Notebooks versus Dataflow Gen2 in Microsoft Fabric

Gilbert Quevauvilliers takes us through a comparison:

In this blog post I am going to compare Dataflow Gen2 vs Notebook in terms of how much it costs for the workload. I will also compare usability as currently the dataflow gen2 has got a lot of built in features which makes it easier to use.

The goal of this blog post is to understand which in my opinion is cheaper and easier to use, which will then be the focus for future blog posts with regards to what I’ve learned along the way, which will hopefully assist you too.

To compare between the two workloads, I am going to be using the same source file as well as do the same transformations which will result in the same result.

Read on for a surprising difference in cost.
