Copy data for on-prem SQL server

Hi, does anyone have an idea of when the "Copy data" activity might work for on-prem data sources (in our case SQL Server)? I know we can use Gen2 dataflows for this - but they are very slow. Really hoping copy data is significantly faster.





Hi @AlexPowers , appreciate the reply - thank you very much! I'll definitely vote in the fabric ideas area, but I'll also throw out there: wihtout this capability, it's really limiting your customers to ones that are already buying Azure from you, and doesn't help attract new customers who (like us) can't move our on-prem SQL server to the cloud easily.


I appreciate the response - thank you!
