  • Hello,

    To share the data between HDInsight cluster, you need to use additional storage accounts.

    While creating an HDInsight cluster, you specify the Azure Storage account you want to associate with it. Also, you can add additional storage accounts from the same Azure subscription or different Azure subscriptions during the creation process or after a cluster has been created. For instructions about adding additional storage accounts, see Create HDInsight clusters.

    Note: Put shared data on a linked storage account specified for all relevant clusters rather than the default storage account.

    After creating an HDInsight cluster, you can add additional storage accounts using script action or from Apache Ambari page.

    This article describes how to add a storage account to an existing HDInsight cluster.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.
