Loading and Writing Non-HDFS Custom Data

Greenplum Database supports TEXT and CSV formats for importing and exporting data through external tables. You can load and save data in other formats by defining a custom format or custom protocol or by setting up a transformation with the gpfdist parallel file server.

For information about importing custom data from HDFS, see Reading and Writing Custom-Formatted HDFS Data.
