Microsoft Azure Synapse Starts Performance Benchmark Race With Amazon RedShift and Google BigQuery
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently announced Azure Synapse Analytics service. Nadella claimed that its service is 75 times faster than Google BigQuery and four times faster than Amazon Redshift.

Microsoft Azure scores quite well in SoftwareReviews’ Big Data category. Any new offerings by Azure Synapse position the vendor to lead this market even further.
