Azure SQL Data Warehouse general availability expanding to 18 regions worldwide

We are excited to announce the general availability of Azure SQL Data Warehouse in four additional regions, bringing general availability up to 18 regions worldwide.

We are excited to announce the general availability of Azure SQL Data Warehouse in four additional regions—North Europe, Japan East, Brazil South, and Australia Southeast. These additional locations bring the product worldwide availability count to 18 regions – more than any other major cloud provider.

SQL Data Warehouse is your go-to SQL-based view across data, offering a fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale cloud solution. It is highly elastic, enabling you to provision in minutes and scale up to 60 times larger in seconds. You can scale compute and storage independently, allowing you to range from burst to archival scenarios, and pay based off what you’re using instead of being locked into a confined bundle. Plus, SQL Data Warehouse offers the unique option to pause compute, giving you even more freedom to better manage your cloud costs.

With general availability, SQL Data Warehouse offers an availability SLA of 99.9% – the only public cloud data warehouse service that offers an availability SLA to customers. Geo-Backups support has also been added to enable geo-resiliency of your data, allowing SQL Data Warehouse Geo-Backup to be restored to any region in Azure. With this feature enabled, backups are available even in the case of a region-wide failure, keeping your data safe. See this blog post for more info on the capabilities and features of SQL Data Warehouse.

Getting started with SQL Data Warehouse is easy and you can provision a data warehouse within minutes. It easily integrates with business intelligence tools like Power BI and with Azure Machine Learning for predictive analytics. Begin today and experience the speed, scale, elasticity, security and ease of use of a cloud-based data warehouse for yourself.
