Data Analytics Studio Installation

Evaluate your database options

DAS requires a PostgreSQL database for storing query event information. During the installation, you can choose to have DAS install and configure a default, managed PostgreSQL database for use, or you can configure a custom PostgreSQL database. You can do this by checking or unchecking the Create Data Analytics Studio database option.

  • Cloudera no longer provides support for any managed Postgres instances on production clusters. However, you can use the managed Postgres database for running a POC. It is strongly recommended to use a custom PostgreSQL database for production environments.
  • The default, managed database is created on the same host as the DAS Event Processor component. It should not be installed on the Ambari server host because it could conflict with the Ambari managed PostgreSQL instance.
  • The custom database that is supported for use is PostgreSQL 9.6.

The default database name is das.
