Extending the AWS Ecosystem with Universal Data Access

Amazon Web Services (AWS) helps organizations host and manage their data processes, like building data visualizations and performing ETL tasks. At CData, we make it easy to connect AWS Services with heterogeneous business applications and distributed data stores to ultimately help businesses develop a more holistic analysis of their data.

With CData’s comprehensive connectivity between AWS and 150+ SaaS, Big Data, and NoSQL enterprise data sources, you can:

  • Connect pure cloud analytics like Amazon QuickSight with real-time data from any application through CData Cloud Hub, a cloud-to-cloud data access tool.
  • Design automated data pipelines that sync data across applications and AWS services using CData Sync.
  • Create serverless on-demand processes to move data between the cloud and any of the 150+ data sources we support using AWS Glue and our JDBC Drivers.

This post briefly walks through the three processes above. For a deeper dive, follow the links to our related Knowledge Base articles.
