Polybase – Bringing Together Hadoop and SQL Server 2016

SQL Server 2016, which is due to be released soon, has a lot of really new interesting features, including Polybase. Polybase integrates data stored in Hadoop with data stored within SQL Server without having to migrate any data, like its predecessor in the Apache Hadoop space, Sqoop. This session will cover the origins of Polybase, how to set up SQL Server 2016 to use it, and what users can expect to see within SQL Server when querying their data which resides in Hadoop clusters.
