Learn how Paxata successfully delivered hybrid connectivity to their customers in our latest Webinar: Frictionless Hybrid Data Access for Clouds.

Access Cloud Data and On-Premises Data Behind the Firewall

Use our hybrid connectivity solutions to access data from any cloud source or an on-premises source behind a firewall. Connect through a single standard interface—SQL (ODBC, JDBC) or REST (OData 2, OData 4). Use our DataDirect Cloud service or host your own using Hybrid Data Pipeline.

Top Three Cloud Integration Solutions

Firewall-Friendly Access to On-Premises Data Sources

Firewall Friendly Access to On-Premises Data Sources
Firewall Friendly Access to On-Premises Data Sources
  • Securely access data behind any firewall without complex network configurations such as SSH tunnels, reverse proxies or VPNs
  • Share data securely between data centers even when the data centers are behind multiple firewalls
  • We support horizontal scalability across multiple server nodes using commercial load balancers
  • All customer-sensitive data elements (including remote credential or database pairings stored) are protected by encryption, both at rest (AES-256) and in transit (SSL/TLS)

  • Unlike VPN, SSH and other traditional solutions, our services are engineered for the cloud to include a scalable architecture, access management, security and data compression
  • Host the Hybrid Connectivity solution in our cloud, your cloud, on-premises or in your DMZ
  • Get real-time connectivity to the latest Big Data, Relational and NoSQL data sources
  • All user passwords are encrypted using SHA-256-bit one-way hash with per-user salt

Expose Your Data Source for Open Analytics via SQL or REST

Expose Data Source
Expose Your Data Source Through a Standard Interface
  • Deploy a standard REST (OData 2, OData 4) or SQL (ODBC, JDBC) data access layer for your database
  • Make your data accessible to analytics platforms, SaaS apps, Python, Java, JavaScript, .NET, R or SAS
  • Expose your on-premises data behind the firewall to cloud apps across the firewall
  • All customer-sensitive data is protected by encryption, both at rest (AES-256) and in transit (SSL/TLS)

A Single Interface to Access Any Cloud Data Source

Single Interface to Access Any Cloud Data Source
  • Access all SaaS/Cloud apps including Salesforce, Google Analytics, Marketo, Eloqua and many more
  • Access data through the interface of your choice—ODBC, JDBC, OData 2 or OData 4

  • One interface to many SaaS APIs each with varying rules for authentication, query, metadata and qualities of service
  • ODBC, JDBC or OData clients default to TLSv1.2
