Cloud storage destinations overview


Adobe Experience Platform can deliver your segments as data files to your cloud storage locations. This enables you to send audiences and their profile attributes to your internal systems, via CSV files for Amazon S3, Azure Blob and SFTP. For Amazon Kinesis and Azure Event Hubs destinations, data is streamed out of Experience Platform in JSON format.
