Winner

I submitted a ADF Pipeline Template Scale Dedicated SQL Pool Dynamically using Azure Data Factory control flow and my submission was marked as WINNER. I am very proud that a simple template where you can easily save costs has won. See full post of the announcement Announcing the Azure Data Factory Hackathon winners! | LinkedIn

This template will help you can to scale up and down a Dedicated SQL Pool in Azure Synapse Analytics.

The pipelines is designed to Scale a SQL Pool within Azure Synapse Analytics. A SQL Pool(Former Azure SQL DW) linked to a SQL (Logical) Server has a slightly different approach(documentation can be found on Github).

Scaling a SQL Pool is actually a necessary functionality during your Data Movement Solutions, it will help to save and optimize your costs.
