Polybase for Blob Storage, to get data from Azure Data Lake Gen2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • It is difficult to find documentation if this is supported or not.

    There is documentation that says import from Azure Data Lake Storage for SQL Server 2016/17/19 is not possible. But this was before the Multi-Protocol access came up, so you might think that you could use Polybase against the Blob endpoint of ADLS?

  • Hi Florian,

    I found some documentation on support for ADLS Gen 2 in comments section, here is the update on support for ADLS Gen 2 and Polybase, looks like  connection to ADLS Gen 2 may be supported  if the ADLS does not support hierarchical namespace. 

    Can you please check the comments  section in the link below:


    Hope that helps, let me know for any further questions on this.
