Azure SQL Data Warehouse Public Preview

Azure SQL Data Warehouse has entered public preview and is expected to be generally available in late 2015. The service provides a hosted, high-performance, and scalable data warehouse service that is based on SQL Server 2014 and is compatible with most SQL Server database engine functionality. The service could be a viable alternative to on-premises data warehouse deployments or a replacement for an aging data warehouse environment, and it can also be used as a test environment to run data warehouse query performance trials without investing in on-premises hardware.
