Chapter 1. About This Guide

The goal of this guide is to provide information and steps required for configuring, using, securing, tuning performance, and troubleshooting access to the cloud storage services using HDP cloud storage connectors available for Amazon Web Services (Amazon S3) and Microsoft Azure (ADLS, WASB).

The primary audience of this guide are the administrators and users of HDP deployed on cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. You may also use this guide if your HDP is deployed in your own data center and you plan to access cloud storage via the connectors; however, your experience and performance may vary based on the network bandwidth between your data center and the cloud storage service.

To learn about the architecture of the cloud connectors, refer to Introducing the Cloud Storage Connectors.
