Azure SQL Data Warehouse: Introducing Premium Storage

Published date: June 06, 2016

We are excited to announce that the Azure SQL Data Warehouse service is moving from Standard to Premium Storage to drive greater performance predictability and consistency for query runtimes, especially at higher data warehouse units (DWUs). Starting today, every new data warehouse that's created will use Azure Premium Storage in most regions where Premium Storage is available.
