Azure Synapse Link for Azure Cosmos DB: SQL serverless runtime support coming soon
Published date: September 22, 2020
Azure Synapse Link will soon have preview support for querying Azure Cosmos DB data with Synapse SQL serverless. In the coming months, you will be able to run analytical T-SQL queries over data in Azure Cosmos DB in place within seconds. These queries can be used to build rich near real-time dashboards using Power BI integration with Azure Synapse Analytics. This new feature enhances the capability of Azure Synapse Link and will give you a wide range of business intelligence and ad-hoc querying tools via the T-SQL interface.
Azure Synapse Link, announced earlier this year, creates a tight integration between Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Synapse Analytics. This gives you direct access to Azure Cosmos DB data from Azure Synapse Analytics to run near real-time business intelligence, analytics, and machine learning pipelines. This integration enables you to build cloud-native HTAP (Hybrid transactional/analytical processing) solutions to perform no-ETL (extract, transform, and load) analytical processing on operational data in Azure Cosmos DB, without impacting the performance of your transactional workloads.
Azure Synapse Analytics will soon support Azure Synapse Link with Synapse Apache Spark and Synapse SQL serverless.
