Reza Rad continues a video series on Microsoft Fabric:
Microsoft Fabric Data Warehouse is a database system that stores data in OneLake and provides a medium to interact with the database using SQL commands. The Fabric Data Warehouse, which is also called Data Warehouse, or in short, Warehouse, also provides a powerful computing engine behind the scene to account for large volumes of data and support a fast-performing database system. The term Data Warehouse comes from the fact that this is not usually a place to store transactional data for an operational system (for that, you can use Azure SQL Database). A Data Warehouse, in generic Business Intelligence terminology, is a place where you would store the data that needs to be analyzed.
Reza also explains how the warehouse differs from a lakehouse.Leave a Comment
