|Base Storage Layer|
When the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform is first installed, the base storage layer must be set.
NOTE: After you have begun using the product, you cannot change the base storage layer.
|Storage - WASB|
For read/write access to WASB, the base storage layer must be set to WASB.
|Storage - ADLS Gen1|
For read/write access to ADLS Gen1, the base storage layer must be set to HDFS.
|Storage - ADLS Gen2||For read/write access to ADLS Gen2, the base storage layer must be set to ABFSS.|
|Storage - Azure SQL Database||For Azure installs, you can optionally create a connection to an Azure SQL Database instance.|

The following table describes the different Azure components that can host or integrate with the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform. Combinations of one or more of these items constitute one of the deployment scenarios listed in the following section.
|Azure Service||Description||Base Storage Layer||Other Required Azure Services|
Optionally, you can integrate the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform with an Azure Databricks cluster.
|Base storage layer can be HDFS (for ADLS Gen1), ABFSS (for ADLS Gen2), or WASB.|
Windows Azure Storage Blobs (WASB) extends HDFS to enable access to storage blobs that have not been deployed into the cluster.
Base Storage Layer = WASB
Active Data Lake Store (ADLS) provides a highly scalable file-based storage system within the cluster.
Base Storage Layer = HDFS
|ADLS Gen2||Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 is a set of capabilities dedicated to big data analytics, built on Azure Blob storage.||Base Storage Layer = ABFSS|
The following database connections are optional.
NOTE: Access to Hive is not supported on Azure Databricks.
You can read from and write to SQL Data Warehouse, a scalable data warehouse solution for Azure.
|Azure SQL Database|
You can read from Azure SQL Database, a SQL Server variant for Azure.
