Proud to be an ADF Hackathon winner!
Azure Data Factory Hackathon
Around the clock
During the event ‘Around the clock Azure SQL and Azure Data Factory’ event on Feb 3, 2021, they kicked-off the Azure Data Factory (ADF) Hackathon. Recording of this event can be found here.
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.
Documentation of this pipeline can be found on GitHub.
