HDFS Tiering is Microsoft's latest contribution to the Apache HDFS open source project. In this video, you will learn how to use the HDFS tiering feature in SQL Server big data clusters, to seamlessly get access to your remote HDFS compatible storages for querying and analysis. To learn more, check out our documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/sql/big-data-cluster/hdfs-tiering?view=sql-server-ver15&WT.mc_id=dataexposed-c9-niner.

    Yes, you can mount against storages on-premises. And yes you can use PolyBase to virtualize data on mounts. Currently we don’t support mounting using AD authentication but it’s something we are working on.
