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:
- Bit.io - Serverless Postgres
- MySQL / MariaDB
- MSSQL Server
... 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
