Azure SQL Warehouse Gets New Data Link


Data integrators continue to roll out connections between huge data stores and public cloud data warehouses. The latest comes from Talend, which this week unveiled a data fabric “uploader” designed to help ingest big data to Microsoft’s upgraded cloud analytics platform, Azure SQL data warehouse.

The data streaming specialist (NASDAQ: TLND) said Thursday (Aug. 16) its connector would facilitate the movement of massive data sets to the public data warehouse without the need for shifting source systems. The company also said it would support Azure SQL data warehouse orchestration, management and data governance as a way to achieve real-time business analytics.

The Azure SQL data warehouse is a cloud analytics platform that provides separate persistent data storage and computing resources. Customers are billed on a consumption basis.

Microsoft recently released a new tier to its Azure SQL data warehouse that adds “adaptive” data caching via nonvolatile storage drives. The upgrade is designed to boost query performance by as much as a factor of five.

Talend, Redwood City, Calif., noted that the combination of its data uploader and recent Azure data warehouse upgrades would help enable faster analytics on more data “without the cloud migration headache.”
