You plan to deploy a Microsoft Azure SQL data warehouse and a web application.

The data warehouse will ingest 5 TB of data from an on-premises Microsoft SQL Server database daily. The web application will query the data warehouse.

You need to design a solution to ingest data into the data warehouse.

Solution: You use AzCopy to transfer the data as text files from SQL Server to Azure Blob storage, and then you use PolyBase to run Transact-SQL statements that refresh the data warehouse database.

Does this meet the goal?

Show Suggested Answer Hide Answer
Suggested Answer: A

If you need the best performance, then use PolyBase to import data into Azure SQL warehouse.

Note: Often the speed of migration is an overriding concern compared to ease of setup and maintainability, particularly when there's a large amount of data to move. Optimizing purely for speed, a source controlled differentiated approach relying on bcp to export data to files, efficiently moving the files to Azure Blob storage, and using the Polybase engine to import from blob storage works best.
