Tip | Selecting default file formats and preferred connections#

The selected default file formats should be closely aligned with the implemented use cases and the technology used. Therefore, Dataiku recommends defining this option jointly with the data science teams using the platform.

Avoid using the local filesystem as a preferred connection to prevent disk space issues that could influence the stability of the DSS platform. Cloud storages or network-attached storage devices are good choices as default connections to foster a separation between the data created by DSS (for example configuration and log files) and data generated by the end users (datasets).
