Developers and DBAs who want an easier way to query Hadoop or Azure Blob Storage data should attend.
Polybase is Microsoft’s newest way of integrating SQL Server with external systems such as Hadoop and Azure Blob Storage. In this talk, we will connect SQL Server to an on-premises Hadoop cluster as well as Azure Blob Storage, writing T-SQL queries to retrieve remote data. We will then use DMVs and other resources to tease out what the Polybase engine is doing behind the scenes. Finally, we will look at several interesting use cases for Polybase.
Why I Want to Present This Session:
Polybase has been a passion of mine ever since its general release in SQL Server 2016. I’ve written a 26-part series (so far) on the topic and want to make data platform professionals aware of just how powerful Polybase can be.
