Hello DataDirect Cloud Users,

We are excited to communicate DataDirect Cloud's support for a number of new On-Premise and Cloud Datastores. These are summarized below and you can access the Support Matrix for specific database versions (http://cms.progress.com/products/datadirect-cloud/support-and-help/datadirect-cloud-support/cloud-support-matrix).

The following sources are now Generally Available:

  • Oracle
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Marketo
  • Eloqua   

The beta datastores now available are:

  • Hadoop Apache Hive
  • DB2 for Linux/Unix/Windows, z/OS, i
  • Greenplum
  • Informix
  • MySQL Enterprise
  • Postgres SQL
  • Sybase ASE

In order to access these new sources you will need to update your ODBC or JDBC client as well as your On-Premise Connector if you are accessing on-premise sources (e.g. OpenEdge, Rollbase).

When you access the datasource menu from the DataDirect Cloud dashboard, you will also now see single icons for all our datasources that have both a cloud and on-premise version.  Clicking on the datasource you wish to connect to will now bring you to a dialogue object where you can choose to configure either the version of the selected datasource.  If you select On-Premise, but later you would like to configure the Cloud version, you simply go back into the datasource configuration object and select the Cloud version. It is a simple as that!!!

We hope you are as excited about the enhanced number of datasources as we are.  We love to hear your feedback and suggestions so please do not hesitate to post any questions, comments, suggestions, or success story (we really love those) to this forum.

As always we thank you for continuing to be loyal DataDirect Cloud customers.

Your DataDirect Cloud Team
