In-Grid SQL Query

Traditionally, customers adopting our platform come from a database (SQL) background. In order to give them a familiar interface for looking into what data exists in the grid, we created a SQL adapter that lets them query the grid as if it’s a traditional database.

This gives the opportunity to plug-in existing visualization tools like:
* Tableau
* MicroStrategy
* QlikView
directly into the grid and use a drag and drop interface to look into grid data.


The JDBC Driver is broadly compatible with the SQL-99 Core specification. It allows database-driven applications to interact with the Space via SQL read queries.

The JDBC driver is based on Apache Calcite and was designed to allow only SQL compatible read operations against data stored in the grid. It does not support create/update/delete operations. Furthermore, the driver was not designed for low latency requirements, although it was developed for integration with applications, such as visualization tools, which support JDBC compliant data sources.
