Name changes: Azure SQL Data Warehouse Gen1 and Gen2

Monday, May 7, 2018

Azure SQL Data Warehouse is a fast, flexible, and trusted analytics platform for enterprises. A new tier called “Gen2” is generally available in 20 Azure regions and offers these benefits:

  • Improves individual query execution times by as much as 10 times over the Gen1 tier
  • Provisions SQL Data Warehouse with five times the computing power and unlimited storage capacity, making it suitable for the most intensive analytics workloads
  • Uses the latest generation of Azure hardware to improve compute and storage scalability

To reflect key investments and capability updates, “SQL Data Warehouse” is now renamed to “Compute Optimized Gen1” or “Compute Optimized Gen2,” respectively. See the following table for name change details.
