Accessing on-premises data from the cloud often brings with it many security and availability headaches, but with DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline it is now possible to securely access data behind any firewall while still leveraging the benefits of advanced cloud load balancing.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to quickly configure Amazon’s Application Load Balancer (ALB) to achieve both the scalability and reliability of a clustered Hybrid Data Pipeline installation by leveraging our support of the WebSockets protocol.
This document assumes you are already familiar with installing a Hybrid Data Pipeline cluster on 2 or more EC2 instances which meet the minimum requirements – including use of an external configuration database and shared storage. It also assumes familiarity with configuring VPCs, Security Groups and basic administration within the AWS environment.
General Information about installing a single node in AWS can be found here, while details on a cluster installation can be found in our Installation Guide.
Note that there are a few changes with the DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline installation specific to supporting cloud load balancers:
For the purpose of this document, it is assumed you are installing a 2 node cluster which only has SSH (port 22) access from the outside world and that both nodes are in the same VPC/subnet.
We hope this tutorial assisted in creating a cloud-based solution to OData enable both your on-premises and cloud data sources using Progress Hybrid Data Pipeline and Amazon’s Application Load Balancer. Now you can have security, scalability and reliability all together in a single data access solution which lets you bring sources such as Oracle, Postgres, MySQL, DB2 and SQL Server out from behind the firewall.
