Slowly the dust settles after the impressive TC18. During my wrap-up, I remembered the data warehouse benchmarks of the Azure & Tableau session by James Rowland-Jones. Especially because my customers ask me about such performance metrics over and over again.

The first benchmark (graph above) shows how Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse (aka. SQL DW) outperforms Amazon Redshift – in terms of performance and price. While the second benchmark shows further performance tests for Amazon Redshift, Snowflake, Azure, Presto, and Google Big Query:
