Azure Synapse Link – Now in Preview

Microsoft has announced a cloud-native execution of HTAP called Azure Synapse Link. A capability which eliminates the obstacles between Azure operational database services and Azure Synapse Analytics.

With a single click, Azure Synapse Link enables the access of insights from real-time transactional data stored within operational databases. It neither requires managing data movement or burdens the operational systems.

Currently, Azure Synapse Link is only available for Azure Cosmos DB but it will roll-out in Azure SQL, Azure Database for PostgreSQL, Azure Database for MySQL, and others in the future.

A direct link to the data contained in Azure Synapse Analytics is established with a simple click from your preferred Azure database service. From that point it is ongoing, the operational data is available to Azure Synapse Analytics automatically and is available in an optimized columnar structure, similar to a covering index.
