Is Photon Enabled by Default for Warehouses in Databricks?

When creating a cluster in Databricks, I notice an option for enabling Photon. However, this option does not appear when configuring a warehouse. Is Photon enabled by default for warehouses in Databricks, or is there a different procedure to enable it?

@Akshay_Petkar good day!

Photon is enabled by default for Databricks SQL warehouses. There is no need for a separate procedure to enable it for warehouses. For clusters, you have the option to manually enable or disable Photon by selecting the "Use Photon Acceleration" checkbox when creating or editing a cluster.
