The can be hosted within Amazon and supports integrations with multiple services from Amazon Web Services, including combinations of services for hybrid deployments. This section provides an overview of the integration options, as well as links to related configuration topics.
For an overview of AWS deployment scenarios, see Supported Deployment Scenarios for AWS.
From AWS, the requires Internet access for the following services:
The following database scenarios are supported.
By default, the are installed on PostgreSQL instances in the or another accessible node in the enterprise environment. For more information, see Set up the Databases.
For Amazon-based installations, you can install the on PostgreSQL instances on Amazon RDS. For more information, see Install Databases on Amazon RDS.
The following configuration topics apply to AWS in general.
NOTE: The base storage layer must be set during initial configuration and cannot be modified after it is set.
S3: Most of these integrations require use of S3 as the base storage layer, which means that data uploads, default location of writing results, and sample generation all occur on S3. When base storage layer is set to S3, the can:
HDFS: In on-premises installations, it is possible to use S3 as a read-only option for a Hadoop-based cluster when the base storage layer is HDFS. You can configure the platform to read from and write to S3 buckets during job execution and sampling. For more information, see Enable S3 Access.
For more information on setting the base storage layer, see Set Base Storage Layer.
For more information, see Storage Deployment Options.
For Amazon integrations, you can configure the to connect to Amazon datastores located in different regions.
NOTE: This configuration is required under any of the following deployment conditions:
In the , please edit the following file:
Insert the following environment variables:
export AWS_DEFAULT_REGION="<regionValue>" export AWS_REGION="<regionValue>"
<regionValue> corresponds to the AWS region identifier (e.g.
When connecting to AWS, the platform supports the following authentication methods:
Access to AWS resources is managed through a single account. This account is specified based on the credential provider method.
AWS key and secret must be specified for individual users.
The supports the following methods of providing credentialed access to AWS and S3 resources.
|This method uses the provided AWS Key and Secret values to access resources.|
When you are running the on an EC2 instance, you can leverage your enterprise IAM roles to manage permissions on the instance for the .
Whether the AWS access mode is set to system or user, the default credential provider for AWS and S3 resources is the .
A single AWS Key and Secret is inserted into platform configuration. This account is used to access all resources and must have the appropriate permissions to do so.
|Each user must specify an AWS Key and Secret into the account user profile to access resources.||For more information on configuring individual user accounts, see Configure Your Access to S3.|
If you are using this method and integrating with an EMR cluster:
As an alternative to copying the JAR file, you can use the EMR EC2 instance-based roles to govern access. In this case, you must set the following parameter:
For more information, see Configure for EC2 Role-Based Authentication.
When the platform is running on an EC2 instance, you can manage permissions through pre-defined IAM roles.
NOTE: If the is connected to an EMR cluster, you can force authentication to the EMR cluster to use the specified IAM instance role. See Configure for EMR.
For more information, see Configure for EC2 Role-Based Authentication .
To integrate with S3, additional configuration is required. See Enable S3 Access.
You can create connections to one or more Redshift databases, from which you can read database sources and to which you can write job results. Samples are still generated on S3.
NOTE: Relational connections require installation of an encryption key file on the . For more information, see Create Encryption Key File.
For more information, see Create Redshift Connections.
can integrate with one instance of either of the following.
NOTE: If is installed through the Amazon Marketplace, only the EMR integration is supported
When in installed through AWS, you can integrate with an EMR cluster for Spark-based job execution. For more information, see Configure for EMR.
If you have installed on-premises or directly into an EC2 instance, you can integrate with a Hadoop cluster for Spark-based job execution. See Configure for Hadoop.
