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.


Deployment limitations

The following limitations apply to installations of 

D s product
 on Azure:

  • 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.

Azure Pre-requisites

Depending on which of the following Azure components you are deploying, additional pre-requisites and limitations may apply:


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

  1. Read: Please read this entire document before you create the EMR cluster or install the 
    D s platform
  2. Cluster sizing: Before you begin, you should allocate sufficient resources for the cluster. For guidance, please contact your 
    D s item
  3. Node: Review the system requirements for the node hosting the 
    D s platform
    . See System Requirements in the Planning Guide.
    1. The required set of ports must be enabled for listening. See System Ports in the Planning Guide.

    2. This node should be dedicated for 

      D s item

  4. 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.


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