Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse Review

Easy to use for the end-user but the initial setup is complex

What is our primary use case?

We use the private deployment model of this solution. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the flexibility and that it's easy to use as an end-user compared to AWS.

What needs improvement?

The initial setup process needs improvement. When you're moving to the cloud it takes a bit of time. It would be great if they could implement something that would make it faster. It takes a bit of time but once you're done, you're done. 

The simplicity is good, but it should be that anyone can use it. You shouldn't have to be technical because, with the way it is now, only a technical person who has had training can set it up. If you have a dashboard that anyone can use, it would be easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is great. It can go from zero to infinity. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is great. We have local support from distributors.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is okay. You can pay as you go. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten.
