To set up and deploy a Transformer engine in your corporate network, you create environments and deployments in Control Hub.

When using self-managed environments and deployments, you take full control of procuring the resources needed to run the engine.

When using one of the cloud service provider integrations that StreamSets provides, such as AWS and GCP environments and deployments, Control Hub automatically provisions the resources needed to run the engine in your cloud service provider account. Control Hub then deploys engine instances to those resources.

In both cases, you must set up the machines to meet the requirements for self-managed deployments as well as the general installation requirements.

A Control Hub deployment defines the stage libraries that are installed on all engine instances belonging to the deployment. When you create any deployment type, you select the stage libraries to install on the engine.

You must also complete the required prerequisites for some stages before using them in a pipeline.
