Using an advanced cluster

Using an
advanced cluster

Mappings in advanced mode run on an
advanced cluster
, which is a Kubernetes cluster that runs mapping logic in a distributed processing environment.
Advanced clusters
are available in the following types:
  • A local cluster with a single node that you can use to quickly onboard projects.
  • A fully-managed cluster that Informatica creates, manages, and deletes.
  • A self-service Kubernetes cluster that your organization manages.
  • An
    advanced cluster
    that a serverless runtime environment creates.
When you start running mappings in advanced mode, you can use a local cluster. As soon as you run a mapping in advanced mode,
Data Integration
automatically creates a temporary, local cluster to run the mapping so that you can access the mapping output immediately.
As you develop larger data integration projects, your administrator can configure your runtime environment to connect to a fully-managed or self-service cluster that adapts to the size of the workload. Or, your administrator can set up a serverless runtime environment that includes an
advanced cluster
for your organization to use.
For more information about advanced clusters, see the Administrator help.
