Book Description

Harness the power of PolyBase data virtualization to make data from a variety of sources easily accessible through SQL queries while using the T-SQL skills you already know and have mastered.

PolyBase Revealed shows you how to use the PolyBase feature of SQL Server 2019 to integrate SQL Server with Azure Blob Storage, Apache , other SQL Server instances, Oracle, Cosmos DB, Apache Spark, and more. You will learn how PolyBase can help you reduce storage and other costs by avoiding the need for ETL processes that duplicate data in order to make it accessible from one source. PolyBase makes SQL Server into that one source, and T-SQL is your golden ticket. The book also covers PolyBase scale-out clusters, allowing you to distribute PolyBase queries among several SQL Server instances, thus improving performance.

With great flexibility comes great complexity, and this book shows you where to look when queries fail, complete with coverage of internals, troubleshooting techniques, and where to find more information on obscure cross- errors. Data virtualization is a key target for with SQL Server 2019. This book will help you keep your skills current, remain relevant, and build new and career opportunities around ’s product direction.
