Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata User Guide


Cloudera offers two connectors that provide high-speed data transfer between Teradata and CDH.

  • Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata A connector that utilizes the Teradata Hadoop SDK for optimal performance.
  • Cloudera Connector for Teradata An older connector that utilizes Teradata FastExport and FastLoad JDBC capabilities for data transfers.

These connectors allow various Sqoop tools such as sqoop-import and sqoop-export to operate in highly efficient direct modes, and expose options that are specific to Teradata.

This guide describes how to install, configure, and use these connectors in a Sqoop installation and provides reference information for connector operation. This guide is intended for:
