    Lightweight Data Gateway

    Access back-office data behind the firewall securely using our patented on-premises connector that can be optionally deployed in the DMZ or behind the corporate firewall. 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.

    Universal Connectivity

    Get real-time connectivity to the latest SaaS, SQL, Big Data and NoSQL data sources such as Salesforce, Apache Hive, Amazon Redshift, Oracle, SQL Server, IBM DB2, Eloqua, Google Analytics and more.

    Support for Generic JDBC Driver (Beta)

    In order to keep up with demand for new data sources, we have introduced the generic JDBC driver. This beta feature allows you to plugin your own JDBC driver into Hybrid Data Pipeline. If you'd like to enable this beta feature for your organization, please contact us.


    All customer-sensitive data elements (including remote credential or database pairings stored) are protected by encryption, both at rest (AES-256) and in transit. Our encryption algorithms can be made FIPS-140 compliant using the FIPS Compliance mode (leverages Bouncy Castle as the security provider). Read our security paper.

    Integrate with Existing Authentication Systems

    Hybrid Data Pipeline supports external authentication so that enterprises can verify users against any of their in-house authentication systems that may be using LDAP system, Windows (Kerberos), SAML/ADFS or any other authentication service. You can even group multiple external authentication users to map to one Hybrid Data Pipeline user to get access to data sources.


    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.
