Concepts → Data Agent
A Data Agent is comprised of:
- a data agent service that runs on a host
- a data agent object in the Data Manager for a given tenant
- an authentication file shared between the data agent object the data agent service
A data agent service enables the extraction of data from one or more databases behind a firewall to an Incorta cluster. Your Incorta cluster can reside on-premises or in the cloud.
A data agent object allows for the generation and regeneration of an authentication file.
The data agent service supports the following databases:
- Apache Drill
- Apache Hive
- Cassandra (Simba)
- Custom SQL
- Data Lake Local Files
- IBM DB2
- MongoDB Bl
- NetSuite SuiteAnalytics
- SAP Hana
- SAP Sybase IQ
- SQL Server
- SQL Server (JTDS)
