DataDirect Cloud: Here and Ready for Action

February 14, 2013 0 Comments

Have you heard the news? DataDirect Cloud Beta is now available! We’re very excited to unveil the service in Beta form, and we look forward to providing our customers with the best possible access to all of their data in the Cloud – no matter what data source(s) they use. If you missed the press release on the launch late last year, here are a few points to bring you up to speed on what DataDirect Cloud is and what it has to offer.

In a nutshell, DataDirect Cloud is a cloud connectivity service that enables simplified SQL access to a broad spectrum of cloud-based data sources through a single standards-based ODBC or JDBC driver.

As the value of Cloud services continues to grow, new Cloud data sources have been popping up all over the place. Organizations that need access to the data in these sources need an easy way to connect to them, which is exactly what DataDirect Cloud provides.


A few of DataDirect Cloud’s Key Features include:

  • A single ODBC and JDBC driver based on the DataDirect premium driver technology that plugs into almost any 3rd party application suite (i.e., Business Intelligence, Enterprise Service Bus, Business Process Management Suites, Data Integration ETL, Java EE)
  • Real-time SQL access to a broad spectrum of data sources through a connectivity management service that resides in the cloud
  • Web based query development tools that allow interaction with SaaS data without any on-premise software required
  • Elastic scalability suitable for the most demanding data access needs
  • Specifically for ISVs, the ability to distribute the DataDirect Cloud OEM driver “in the box” and support a broad array of data sources that will be updated and expanded regularly without having to redeploy to on premise installations.
