Connecting from Databricks to Network Path

Hi All,

Will appreciate if someone can help me with some references links on connecting from Databricks to external network path. I have Databricks on AWS and previously used to connect to files on external network path using Mount method. Now Databricks does not recommend mounts but recommends Unity Catalog Volumes, but there are no references of using Unity Catalog Volumes to connecting on-premise network folders. Can someone guide in case that it can be achieved?

how did you connect to the storage?  did you mount it on the cluster with an init script?

Currently we connect to the cloud storages as external storages using unity catalog. We have not yet connected to the on-premise network storages, which is currently the solution we are looking for.

I don't think that it is possible at the moment.  UC focuses on cloud data.
You might want to try to use Minio, but apparently UC does not support Minio yet
Pity, because that would be an awesome solution.
