Microsoft PowerBI with Hortonworks Hive/HBase/Spark Integration

I'm thrilled with Microsoft's offering with PowerBI but still not able to find any possible direct way to integrate with my Hortonworks Hadoop cluster. I went through the tutorials and found two things:

  • PowerBI can fetch data from HDInsights Azure cluster using thrift, if that's possible then is it possible to connect with any other Hadoop distro to connect to it as well?

  • We can connect using ODBC driver which is offered by Simba Technologies but I was wondering if it's possible to connect using Apache Phoenix drivers which offer JDBC drivers for HBase?

Appreciate your thoughts/suggestions/help!

Cheers, Ram

In Desktop, the latest version, there is an option to connect to a "Hadoop File (HDFS)". It has for the name of your Hadoop Server.
