One of the new features of Synapse Analytics is Synapse Link – the ability to query a live analytics store within CosmosDB with only tiny amounts of setup. We’ve recently seen it rolled out for the SQL On-Demand endpoint, meaning we can write both Spark and SQL directly over this analytics store!

In today’s video, Simon demonstrates how we can use Synapse Link to build up a Lambda Architecture, which enables near real-time querying with relatively little fuss!

More information on Synapse Link can be found here:

For the OG Lambda Architecture, check out Nathan Marz’s book “Big Data” here –
