Zoomdata, which presents messy data from Hadoop and other sources in a more understandable graphical way, now supports various Amazon Web Services data sources.
The Redwood Shores, Calif., company now offers connectors that tap into Amazon Redshift data warehouse; Elastic Map Reduce (EMR); Kinesis streaming data; and Aurora relational databases. It already offers connectors to Cloudera and Hortonworks
Hadoop as well as Spark, Solr, MongoDB
, and the usual roster of relational databases, including Oracle, MySQL, Microsoft
Since many companies that have long used Oracle
or SQL Server relational databases, which deal with the traditional rows-and-columns of data, are also turning to nonrelational (NoSQL) databases to handle other data types, having a single tool that can tap into all those sources is of interest.
Itâ€™s worth noting that Amazon
itself already announced QuickSight, a data analysis and visualization tool for its own sets of data. Whatâ€™s more interesting is that QuickSight itself is reportedly a relabeled version of Zoomdataâ€™s technology. Zoomdata had no comment.
Customers can pay $1.91 per hour to use Zoomdata for AWSâ€”the charge is in addition to the hourly Amazon charges, which are billed separately. Or they can pay an annual fee that includes support.
