EMC Greenplum

DSS supports the full range of features on Greenplum:

  • Reading and writing datasets
  • Executing SQL recipes
  • Performing visual recipes in-database
  • Using live engine for charts


We have a detailed howto for your first steps with SQL databases in DSS.

You might want to start with that Howto. The rest of this page is reference information for Greenplum.

Installing the JDBC driver

The Greenplum driver is pre-installed in DSS. You don’t need any further installation.

Setting distribute and sort clauses

DSS does not have builtin support for setting Greenplum “DISTRIBUTE BY” and “SORT BY” clauses. If you want or need to set it on a managed dataset written by DSS, go to the settings of the dataset, in the “Advanced” tab, and override the “Table creation SQL statement”
