Include Azure Data Studio in Windows and Linux DSVM images
Currently, on the Windows DSVM the image provides SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) which is the classic SQL DB management and development tool.
Microsoft released a new experience way back in July 2018 called Azure Data Studio (ADS) which provides a variety of new features and some overlapping features with SSMS and runs on Linux and Windows.
The new tool is complementary to SSMS and is seeing significant investment related to the Azure Synapse experience. You’ll see many of the features of ADS align with data science activities including support for Notebooks, HDFS integration, flat file import, CSV/JSON export, extensions, source code control and Azure Resource Explorer. You can review the full Feature Comparison of SSMS and ADS here:
Please include this tool in both the Linux and Windows VM images
Thank you for your request – Azure Data Studio is now included on both Windows and Ubuntu DSVMs.
