ArcGIS Enterprise + SQL Server (NON Enterprise geodatabase)

Hopefully a quick question, can ArcGIS Enterprise use a standard SQL Server to access spatial tables (e.g. using geometry/geography) or does it have to be an Enterprise Geodatabase that the data is read from?


If it is possible, are there a lot of reasons you would not do this?



*The reason I ask is publishing to a Geodatabase requires ArcPy which requires desktop/ArcGIS Pro which we are unable to run (as far as I know) in a Databricks cluster. 


Thanks for any help/direction
