Azure Synapse Analytics is the next incarnation of Azure SQL Data Warehouse from Microsoft. Like SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Synapse Analytics is a cloud-based, relational data warehouse system with MPP (massively parallel processing), virtually unlimited scaling capacity, and the power to process and store petabytes of data. The difference is that Azure Synapse Analytics has added business intelligence, machine learning, and other advanced features to its data warehousing profile. Microsoft has also boosted the platform's capacity to ingest, transform, manage, and process larger volumes of relational and non-relational data faster and more efficiently.
