Data Lake Analytics (DLA) is a serverless cloud native interactive query and analytics service. It allows you to use standard SQL statements to analyze data from the following data sources:
Alibaba Cloud database services: ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL, ApsaraDB RDS for SQL Server, ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL, ApsaraDB for MariaDB TX, PolarDB, Oracle, AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL, AnalyticDB for MySQL 2.0, and AnalyticDB for MySQL 3.0
User-created databases: user-created MySQL databases that are hosted on ECS, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and user-created Druid databases that are hosted on ECS
To familiarize yourself with DLA, Quick Start uses the data source OSS as an example to describe how to activate DLA, create an OSS table by using the wizard, and execute SQL statements to manage OSS data.
Before you use DLA, you must register an Alibaba Cloud account and complete real-name verification. If you do not have an Alibaba Cloud account, the system prompts you to register an account when you activate DLA.
