Mutliple Hive catalogs

Hello,

Is it possible to use multiple Hive catalogs with Databricks? I know it can be done with Unity Catalog, but we're the only workspace admins in our organization. As far as I understand, we'd need account-level access to set up Unity Catalog.

Best regards,

Chris

Yes, it is possible to use multiple Hive catalogs with Databricks. Databricks supports multiple Hive metastores in a single workspace, which allows you to work with data stored in different environments, such as AWS S3 or Azure Data Lake Storage, through separate Hive catalogs.

Hi @Suteja, thank you for your response.
Is there any documentation explaining how to configure multiple catalogs? I was unable to find anything that wasn't related to Unity catalog.
