Scenario Description


NOTE: All hardware in use for supporting the platform is maintained within the enterprise infrastructure on Azure.

  • Installation of 
    D s product
     on a node in Microsoft Azure
  • Installation of 
    D s item
     on the same node
  • Integration with a supported cluster for running jobs.
  • Base storage layer and backend datastore of ADLS or WASB
  • High availability or failover of the 
    D s node
     is not supported in Azure.
  • High availability of cluster components is automatically managed by the HDI cluster. 
    • Auto-management does not apply to non-Hadoop clusters, such as Azure Databricks.

For more information on deployment scenarios, see Supported Deployment Scenarios for Azure.

Product Limitations

  • The application user credentials are used to access to the HDI cluster. Details are provided below.
  • ADLS/Storage Blob access is only for the HDInsight cluster's primary storage. Additional storage accounts are not supported.
  • HDFS must be set as the base storage layer of the 
    D s platform
    . Details are provided later.
    • S3 integration and AWS-based integrations such as Redshift are not supported.
  • Use of HttpFS is not supported.
  • Security features such as Kerberos and secure impersonation are not supported.

For more information on the limitations of this deployment scenario, see Product Limitations.


Desktop Requirements

  • All desktop users of the platform should have a supported version of Google Chrome installed on their desktops.
    • For more information. see Desktop Requirements.
    • If a supported browser is not available within your enterprise, desktop users can install the 
      D s item
      itementerprise application
       as a separate application. For more information, see Install Desktop Application.
  • All desktop users must be able to connect to the EC2 instance through the enterprise infrastructure.

Azure Pre-requisites

Depending on which of the following Azure components you are deploying, additional pre-requisites and limitations may apply. Please review these sections as well.


Before you begin, please verify that you have completed the following:

  1. Review Planning Guide: Please review and verify Install Preparation and sub-topics.
  2. Read: Please read this entire document before you


D s platform
  1. begin.
  2. Acquire Assets: Acquire the installation package for your operating system and your license key. For more information, contact 
    D s support
    1. If you are completing the installation without Internet access, you must also acquire the offline versions of the system dependencies. See Install Dependencies without Internet Access.
  3. Cluster sizing: Before you begin, you should allocate sufficient resources for the cluster. For guidance, please contact your 

    D s item

  4. Node: Review the system requirements for the node hosting the 
    D s platform
    . See System Requirements.
    1. The required set of ports must be enabled for listening. See System Ports.

    2. This node should be dedicated for 

      D s item

  5. Databases:
    1. The platform utilizes a set of databases that must be accessed from the 
      D s node
      . Databases are installed as part of the workflow described later.
    2. For more information on the supported databases and versions, see System Requirements.
    3. For more information on database installation requirements, see Install Databases.

Limitations: For more information on limitations of this scenario, see Product Limitations in the Install Preparation area.

Deploy the Cluster

Deploy and provision a cluster of one of the supported types. The 

D s platform
 supports integrations with multiple cluster types. 


Cluster TypeSupported O/S for VMNotes
HDInsightUbuntu only

D s platform
must be installed on an edge node of the HDInsight cluster.

Azure DatabricksCentOS and Ubuntu 

For more information on the supported EMR cluster distributions, see Supported Deployment Scenarios for Azure.


  1. Create the following directories, which are specified by parameter in the platform. 

    Default HDFS pathPlatform configuration property



  2. Change the ownership of the above directories to trifacta:trifacta or the corresponding values for the S3 user in your environment.


As soon as you login, you should change the password on the admin account. In the left menu bar, select Settings > Admin Settings. Scroll down to Manage Users. For more information, see Change Admin Password.
