Creating a new SQL Pool

Create Azure Synapse SQL Pool

SQL Pool Name (SQL pool name should not be greater than 15 characters) and select the correct Performance Level. Be careful in selecting the Performance Level. DW 1000c will cost you  € 12,73 per hour excluding storage. My advice is to start small and scale up when necessary. More about DWc units can be found here.

Review Azure Synapse SQL Pool

Review your settings and your SQL Pool will be created.

Remarks

Be aware that if you already have another Azure SQL DW running, you cannot select or add it to your Azure Synapse Workspace.
Adding an SQL pool is only possible via the Azure Synapse Workspace(Azure Portal or Studio).

If you install it as a standalone component through the Azure portal, the SQL Pool cannot be added to the Azure Synapse Workspace.

Pause SQL Pool

And if you don’t use your SQL pool please PAUSE it. It will save you a lot of money.
