Comparing SQL Server to Databricks

Paul Andrew makes a comparison:

Microsoft SQL Server and Azure Databricks over the many years I’ve been working in the data/IT industry have easily become my two favourite data processing tools. When Databricks became a first-class resource in Microsoft Azure, it was a big moment for the evolution of the data platform architectures I’ve designed and built (but architecture isn’t the focus for this blog). That said, rather than considering the tooling and technology as an evolution, I find a lot of people drawing comparisons between the products. This often leads to confusion and friction, as they are ultimately offering a lot of different capabilities, with only some common areas where comparisons could be made.

Read on for Paul’s thoughts. Spoilers: I agree with pretty much all of it.
