PolyBase: Support for Azure SQL Database
Azure SQL Database does not currently support Polybase, though it is supported in the on-premise version.
Not planned at this time. Will keep this item open for future review.
Please add this. was building a solution to utilize elastic queries and pools with SQL databases as it met the business need more so than a DW.
a really useful feature

Please add Polybase to SQL Database. In a full PaaS solution where SQL DW is not applicable there's no chance to interact with Hadoop via t-SQL, which is nonsense. Thanks in advance for fixing this

Cloud first Mobile first ;) ....Azure SQL Database should have had this feature before SQL Server 2016. Please add this feature.
