When Real-Time Data Calls, DataDirect Cloud Answers

June 27, 2014 0 Comments

Whether you’re an IT manager or business user, you most likely need access to real-time information residing in an organizational database—which inconveniently sits behind a secure corporate firewall. To get access to on-premise data usually requires a VPN connection, SSH tunneling or a configured firewall to expose the database port, which consumes valuable time and resources. But now, DataDirect Cloud has changed all that.

Using innovative, patent-pending technology, DataDirect Cloud On-Premise Connector provides secure access to on-premise data without the need to set up a VPN, SSH tunneling or change the firewall configurations, allowing for real-time access to in-network data sources from anywhere.

The connector is installed on a local network machine and directs DataDirect Cloud requests to the destination database. Think of a phone operator directing calls. When DataDirect Cloud receives a call, the On-Premise Connector answers and verifies the requestor’s identity. It then opens a secure line of communication. The best part? DataDirect Cloud On-Premise Connector supports a wide variety of databases, including Progress OpenEdge, Apache Hive, IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft and more!
