Connecting Databases#

Relational Databases#

DataDistillr can connect to a wide variety of commonly used relational databases. DataDistillr uses JDBC as the connection mechanism, so if there is a particular database or other source that has a JDBC driver, and it is not listed as a source that we support, please email our support team and we can add it.

DataDistillr currently supports:

  • - Serverless Postgres
  • BitQuery
  • Elasticsearch
  • MySQL / MariaDB
  • MSSQL Server
  • Oracle
  • Postgres
  • Snowflake
  • Splunk

... and more coming soon! You can request a database by emailing our support team

The connection procedure for relational databases is essentially the same for most relational databases. You will need:

  • A unique name for your database connection to be used in queries
  • The hostname and port for your database
  • Your access credentials
  • Any other configuration variables needed to connect
