Earlier this year, Microsoft revealed plans to offer a new HDFS-compatible Hadoop File System data store that could run large analytics workloads called Azure Data Lake. So far, the technical preview hasn't appeared but the company today reiterated that the service, which it will actually call Azure Data Lake Store, will be available later this year and also announced some new services planned for its Azure-based Big Data portfolio.

PolyBase is a new feature added to the SQL Server 2016. This feature includes PolyBase technology that enables truly integrated querying across Hadoop non-relational data and SQL Server relational data using standard T-SQL statements.
While installing PolyBase, it is listed under the instance feature.
However, when this feature is selected, in the next screen you will get this error screen.
This means this is not a instance feature.
