1. Storage Connector

Let's reach the Organization Settings and the Storages and Datalakes tab. From this view, you can manage the Datalake and the access to Object Storages among your Organization:

As explained previously, there is initially only the default Storage Connector allowing the default Datalake to read/write Data on the bucket dedicated to the Organization the Picsellia Object Storage.

Now let's create a new Storage Connector for your own bucket. To do it, you can click on Add Storage Connector.

A form will open in which you can give a name to your Storage Connector and select the Cloud Provider hosting your Object Storage.

Depending on the selected Cloud Provider, you must fill different fields in this modal. Basically, the fields you need to fill are related to the credentials you get from your cloud provider when creating the dedicated access for Picsellia.

For instance, here is the form to fill out if your bucket is hosted on AWS S3.

After having clicked on "Create", a new Storage Connector will be created as you can see below:

In our case, a brand-new Storage Connector has been added to the list, the icon indicates that this one is an AWS bucket connector.

Please note, that each Organization has a Default Connector, this means that all the files that are not images will be stored through this Storage Connector. For instance, the Model files, Experiment Artifacts, Monitoring Heatmaps etc.. will be stored by Picsellia through your Default Connector.

The connection between your Picsellia Organization and the bucket hosted by your Cloud provider has now been properly and securely established.

2. Create a new Datalake

It is now time to create a new Picsellia Datalake that will use the Storage Connector freshly created to read and write Data on your bucket.

To do so, you just need to go to the Datalake section and click on + Add Datalake.

default Datalake

As you can see, initially the only existing Datalake is the one called default and connected to the bucket created for you on the Picsellia Object Storage.

To create a new Datalake, you simply need to give it a name and choose the proper Storage Connector to use in order to read and write on your own bucket.
