This Quick Start deploys Informatica Big Data Management automatically into an AWS Cloud configuration of your choice.

Big Data Management enables you to integrate, govern, and secure big data assets in Apache Hadoop. The automated deployment includes Informatica Domain, Model Repository Service, and Data Integration Service.

The Quick Start includes AWS CloudFormation templates and a guide that provides step-by-step instructions to help you get the most out of your deployment.

  • What you'll build

    Use this Quick Start to set up the following Big Data Management environment on AWS:

    • A virtual private cloud (VPC) configured with public and private subnets across two Availability Zones. This provides the network infrastructure for your Big Data Management deployment.*
    • An Internet gateway to provide access to the Internet.*
    • An Informatica server and Data Integration Service.
    • Informatica domain and repository databases hosted on Amazon RDS using Microsoft SQL Server. The domain database manages the service-oriented architecture (SOA) namespace, and the repository database holds all the metadata about objects.
    • Amazon EMR cluster for the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and Hive.
    • Your choice to create a new VPC or deploy into your existing VPC on AWS. The template that deploys the Quick Start into an existing VPC skips the components marked by asterisks above.


    To access Informatica Services on the AWS Cloud, you can install the Informatica client on a Microsoft Windows machine.

    For details, see the Quick Start deployment guide.
