Azure Synapse is an enterprise-scale cloud warehouse. It is peta-byte scale because it separates compute and storage. Compute nodes use the SQL Server database engine & data is stored in Azure Blob Storage. (Azure Synapse was formerly known as Azure SQL Data Warehouse.)
Please make sure the following items are true before getting setup or make sure you have the permissions and ability to configure the following before going through the setup process:
