How to archive data on CDP Public Cloud?

New Contributor


For the on-prem cloudera setups where data are stored on local disks, we add a tag mentioning that this disk will for archive and assign HDFS policies to do so. But, on Cloud since HDFS is advised to use as a temporary place and data are mostly stored  on cloud object storage. Also, for both Hive managed and external tables the location is cloud object storage. So, is the way to do the archive is just by applying the archive policies on the object storage? Cloudera's docs only mention the on-prem way which is additional disk.
