Before you start

Make sure you have the following setup and resources to successfully install and use LiveData Platform for Azure.

Supported Versions#

Filesystems supported as sources:

  • HDP 2.6.3, 2.6.5, 3.1.0
  • CDH 5.13, 5.15, 5.16, 6.2, 6.3
  • CDP 7.1.4

Note: All HDFS versions from Hadoop 2.6 should work, however, if you need additional support, contact WANdisco Support.

Filesystems supported as targets:

  • ADLS Gen 2

Supported Hive Migrator metastores:

  • Azure HDI 3.6/4.0 Hive External Metastore
  • Azure SQL DataBase

Azure CLI:

  • Minimum version - 2.26.0

Source environment#

Provide your own Hadoop cluster or use the HDFS Sandbox if you want to test LiveData Platform for Azure.


The HDFS Sandbox is available for both LiveData Migrator for Azure and LiveData Plane for Azure.

For your own Hadoop cluster, the following prerequisites are required:

  • Root access to the Hadoop cluster.
  • Network requirements must be met.
    • For example, LiveData Migrator for Azure requires that ports 5671 and 443 are open for outbound traffic.

Azure resources#

Make sure your selected region is supported and consistent across all your resources.

Resources for LiveData Migrator metadata migrations#

To migrate metadata, you will require the following:

Supported regions#

The following regions are supported.

  • Australia East
  • Canada Central
  • East Asia
  • East US 2
  • East US
  • Korea Central
  • North Europe
  • Southeast Asia
  • South Central US
  • Sweden Central
  • UK South
  • West Europe
  • West Central US
  • West US
  • West US 2
  • West US 3

LiveData Migrator now supports the Australia East, Canada Central, Korea Central, Sweden Central and UK South regions. If you'd like to use these regions, but don't see them in the dropdown list in Azure Portal, you might need to re-register the resource provider.

Next steps#

As an additional prerequisite to use LiveData Migrator for Azure, register the LiveData resource providers.
