Get trusted hybrid data access without requiring major network/firewall configurations such as setting up a VPN or SSH tunneling.

    Horizontal Scaling

    Hybrid Data Pipeline can be deployed in cloud and enterprise environments across multiple nodes behind a load balancer. Incoming requests can be evenly distributed across cluster nodes.

    Secure

    All customer-sensitive data elements (including remote credential or database pairings stored) are protected by encryption, both at rest (AES-256) and in transit. Read our security paper.

    Throttling

    Limits API allows administrators to set limits on how many rows can be returned for ODBC, JDBC, and OData requests. An error is returned if an application fetches rows beyond the specified limit.

    Data APIs over HTTPS

    A data API management layer provides standard SQL (ODBC, JDBC) or REST (OData) interfaces to support the needs of the new technical data consumers - data engineers, data scientists and business analysts.
