Cloudera Operational Database (COD) supports both high performance storage and Amazon
S3 or Azure Data Lake Gen2 storage through the abfs connector as a storage layer. While the
default option is cloud storage, COD also provides you an option to choose high performance
You can use high performance storage either in an on-premises or a cloud environment to
maintain low-latency and high-throughput for your application. If your applications are
latency sensitive, Cloudera recommends that you use high performance storage for your
COD databases. The average read and write latency for COD on a high performance storage
is 500% better than the COD that uses S3 storage for all the workloads.
