  1. TRANSACTION support for RENAME

    Since MERGE statement is not supported, we are using CTAS for preparing the new table and using the rename operation.

    Currently we do not have the TRANSACTION support for the RENAME operations.

    When we have two rename operations we may run into inconsistent state if second statement fails.

    RENAME OBJECT FinalTable TO FinalTable_Old;
    RENAME OBJECT FinalTable_Stage TO FinalTable;

    To overcome this, we need some workaround or support for transactions.

  2. unit test framework

    The open source tsqlt framework requires CLR which is not available in Azure SQL DW. A framework to to write unit tests would increase trust in the queries.

    Thank you for your feedback folks. We are actively looking into this scenario specifically with SSDT Database Project support with SQL Data Warehouse. Please continue voting and monitoring this item for updates. Thank you for your patience.

  3. Display the total size of the data warehouse including snapshots/restore points and geo-backups

    Display the total size of the data warehouse including snapshots/restore points and geo-backups. This will help customer project storage costs of the data warehouse.

  5. Availability Zones - Introduce a high availability option for SQL DW

    If a high availability option would be introduced for SQL DW, it would benefit customers like us, who are using the service to run business critical applications.

    Currently there are too many potential time windows for maintenance breaks and it would be great if there would be no need to worry about those interfering with production. Perhaps a similar option could be introduced, as for SQL DB?
