What is Microsoft Fabric?
Microsoft Fabric is a unified software-as-a-service analytics platform that brings together tools for data engineering and modelling, data science, data warehousing and reporting all in one place. Some key components include data integration with Azure Data Factory, data storage with OneLake (based on Azure Data Lake) and reporting with Power BI.
Fabric also has strong AI capabilities thanks to Copilot, Microsoft’s new AI-assistant technology. In Fabric, Copilot uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) to help developers write code, create reports, and produce measures. To learn more, check out this video from Microsoft.
How to Get Started With Fabric
Outside of a limited time free trial period, Microsoft Fabric requires the purchase of one or more Fabric capacities. A capacity is a pool of cloud resources hosted by Microsoft dedicated for use by the capacity owner. Various subscription levels (called SKUs) have different pricing and computing power.
An organization can have one or more capacities. For example, a larger organization might have a capacity dedicated to sales and a separate capacity for finance.
Fabric capacities are available for purchase on a monthly basis or as an hourly pay-as-you-go model. One potential benefit of the pay-as-you-go model is that the Fabric service can be paused when not in use and easily started again once it is needed.
For more information on Fabric’s pricing and SKUs, we recommend visiting Microsoft’s official webpage.
