Dynamodb ODBC Driver

Simba Amazon DynamoDB ODBC and JDBC drivers with SQL Connector are simply the best ways to connect your BI application of choice to your DynamoDB data.

Simba Amazon DynamoDB ODBC and JDBC drivers with SQL Connector give you relational access to your NoSQL data, so you (and your analysts) can leverage existing SQL expertise to query NoSQL data. The Simba connectors can also virtualize your data, which ensures that your traditional BI tools work effectively—even with unstructured data.

Since the Amazon DynamoDB data warehouse is schema-less, Simba DynamoDB connectors with SQL Connector allow users to define schemas on the fly, providing a powerful SQL window into DynamoDB data. In addition, Simba SQL engine’s built-in Collaborative Query Execution (CQE) passes down filters to provide high-performance access to DynamoDB databases.
