Data Integration Hosted Agent

If you have the Cloud Runtime license, you can use the Data Integration Hosted Agent (Hosted Agent) as a runtime environment for a Google Bigtable connection.
Data Integration Secure Agents are installed locally. As an alternative to installing a Secure Agent, you can use a Hosted Agent. Hosted Agents are hosted at a Data Integration hosting facility. The Data Integration hosting facility manages the Hosted Agent runtime environment and the Agents that run in it. You cannot add, delete, or configure a Hosted Agent runtime environment. Because you do not install a Hosted Agent, you do not have access to files normally stored in the Secure Agent directory, such as configuration, success, and reject files.
