Thank you to all who attended my online workshop this morning! I had two questions I’d like to address:

Q: Can you use the ODBC Hive solution to insert data into Hadoop?

A: Not with our current technology. Hadoop data is basically read-only. There is no ODBC way to update a row for instance. It can be updated using things like Pig but basically what you’re doing is replacing entries.

Q: Can you use CSV/Storage Spaces?

A: I did some checking and the general answer is no. On the other hand why would you want to? There’s blob storage and plain old UNC file paths.

Thanks everyone!
