What is Azure Synapse?

Azure Synapse is an analytics service that helps you bring together Big Data analytics and enterprise data warehousing. It gives freedom to query data on your very own desired terms, using either provisioned resources or server-less on-demand—at scale. You can ingest, prepare, serve and manage data for machine learning and immediate BI needs.

What is Google BigQuery?

It is a Google Cloud Platform to an enterprise data warehouse for analytics. It is good for analyzing the huge amount of data to meet big data processing requirements. The provided data is encrypted, durable, and highly available. It offers Exabyte-scale storage and petabyte-scale SQL queries. With the growth of business managing data becomes a tough task. This focus can be reshifted to analyze business-critical data. Dremel is a powerful query engine developed by Google that is used to execute queries in BigQuery.

Comparision between BigQuery and Azure Synapse

Attributes Google BigQuery Azure Synapse
G2 Rating
