Setting up a Hive Virtual Warehouse

You learn how to set up a Hive Unified Analytics Virtual Warehouse. If you have extract, transform, and load (ETL) jobs, you need to learn how to enable query isolation mode.

When you create a Hive Virtual Warehouse, Unified Analytics is automatically enabled. This type of Virtual Warehouse can read and write full ACID tables in the Hive metastore. ETL jobs, identified by their size, run in query isolation mode if enabled.
