General availability: Azure SQL Data Warehouse Gen2

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Take advantage of Azure SQL Data Warehouse Gen2, which is now generally available. Gen2, formerly known as Optimized for Compute, comes with five times the compute capacity and four times the concurrent queries of the Gen1 offering.

The enhanced storage architecture on Gen2 introduces unlimited columnar storage capacity, while maintaining the ability to independently scale compute and storage. The capacity increase means that users can run their most demanding workloads on Gen2. The increase in concurrent queries provides an opportunity to run more in parallel, to help ensure full utilization of system resources.
