This topic describes how to upload files.
You can upload local files into your Dremio cluster and use this data as a source with the same features as your other data sources. For example, you can upload an Excel spreadsheet, JSON, Parquet, or CSV file from your desktop. Once your file is uploaded, you can transform the data, join it with our data sources, and query it with SQL or any BI tool.
Once uploaded, the file is displayed in your Personal Space. This file is now a data source in Dremio that you can use like any other data source, including the ability to query through SQL or with your favorite BI tool.
To view the file contents, click on the file.
This is a copy of your local file. Updates to your local file are not reflected in Dremio.
You cannot perform bulk uploads into Dremio. Instead, groups of files with the same structure in a common directory can be queried together like they are a single table. To learn more, see the chapter on Directories.
If you are running Dremio locally, you can create a NAS data source and connect to your local files. To learn more, see the chapter on NAS.
By default, data in your personal space is private to the user. However, you can share with other users of Dremio by saving it as a virtual dataset in a public space.
