Late last year MS announced the deprecation of Data export service
So far i can’t find an adequate replacement for our usage.
we are using the Azure SQL database for real(ish) time queries that feed a transaction system. Current DES serves teh following
* under half second response time
* low replication latency even though the official SLA is <15min
* full use of TSQL language
It isn’t uncommon to need to read the data only a few seconds after a write and that has been our experience with DES.
What i have found that replaces DES so far hasn’t met these needs. I have set up sql serverless over the Synapse data lake. That works but it is too slow. The search time on the simplest query is >10secs. The TSQL language is limited (though i think i can work around that). There are options to use ADF to pump that into Azure SQL however that would need to run on a trigger (timer). I wouldn’t get single digit seconds latency I get now using that.
Those are the options as i understand them. And i don’t see how any of those fills the gap left behind DES deprecation.
This is a production environment and i don’t have an adequate solution only a few months before DES is turned off.
I would very much appreciate ideas on how others have solved this.
