Connecting to Data
Zoomdata can connect to a wide array of data stores—from modern databases such as Hadoop, Search, Streaming, and NoSQL, to traditional sources like SQL-based stores. By default, your environment comes pre-configured with certain connectors enabled. However, additional connectors are available. If the connector you are looking for is not shown, it may be because:
- The connector is installed but is not enabled. For more information, see Managing Connectors.
- The connector was not installed and needs to be downloaded separately. For more information, see Obtaining Additional Connectors.
- The connector requires you to provide a licensed JDBC driver. For more information, see Adding a JDBC Driver.
Certain connectors require a JDBC driver, which is obtained through a separate download. This allows you to select and add a driver that meets your operation needs or policies. The following connectors require a JDBC driver to be installed before configuring and connecting can occur: Aurora, Amazon Redshift, MemSQL, MySQL, Oracle, SAP IQ, and Teradata.
To connect to a data store and use its data in a Zoomdata chart, you must first create a data source configuration for it. See Managing Data Source Configurations for more information.
