Can configure the custom Dremio metadata storage using hive metastore?

Hive metastore has already be supported in many bigdata products and it now can be split from hadoop as a standalone service on cloud native.

Dremio can read Hive metastore even if it is outside of Hadoop. Is that your question? As long as Dremio is able to talk to the metastore host and get locations of files on HDFS, it should work

Thanks

Currently Dremio holds metadata in a directory of disk.

Dremio’s metadata on RocksDB and Hive metastore are 2 entirely different things, cannot be clubbed

Is there a way to register in the Hive Metastore a dataset served by Dremio (Apache Arrow Flight) ?

In such an architecture Dremio is not the datalake engine but a part of a bigger data mesh.

Is that what you meant koolay ?
Is that making sense?

Yes, it’s another very usefull sense.
Dremio’s metastore requires a mounted disk for distribution.
Dremio will be stateless if that it’s metastore is backend in hive metastore.
