You’ve probably been told that Azure Synapse is just for very large data projects. Which is true. It is designed for limitless storage and super powerful compute. But there are ways to start with smaller datasets and grow from there by integrating new data engines to the workspace. In this episode of Data Exposed: MVP Edition with Armando Lacerda and Anna Hoffman, you will learn how to tailor Synapse to your data volume profile and position your cloud data pipeline for growth and expansion when needed.
