Frequently Asked Avro Driver Questions

Learn more about Avro drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration

The Avro driver acts like a bridge that facilitates communication between various applications and Avro, allowing the application to read data as if it were a relational database. The Avro driver abstracts the complexities of Avro APIs, authentication methods, and data types, making it simple for any application to connect to Avro data in real-time via standard SQL queries.

Working with a Avro Driver is different than connecting with Avro through other means. Avro API integrations require technical experience from a software developer or IT resources. Additionally, due to the constant evolution of APIs and services, once you build your integration you have to constantly maintain Avro integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our Avro Drivers offer codeless access to live Avro data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live Avro data from any client application. Because our drivers conform to standard data interfaces like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET etc. they offer a consistent, maintenance-free interface to Avro data. We manage all of the complexities of Avro integration within each driver and deploy updated drivers as systems evolve so your applications continue to run seamlessly.

Many organizations draw attention to their library of connectors. After all, data connectivity is a core capability needed for applications to maximize their business value. However, it is essential to understand exactly what you are getting when evaluating connectivity. Some vendors are happy to offer connectors that implement basic proof-of-concept level connectivity. These connectors may highlight the possibilities of working with Avro, but often only provide a fraction of capability. Finding real value from these connectors usually requires additional IT or development resources.

Unlike these POC-quality connectors, every CData Avro driver offers full-featured Avro data connectivity. The CData Avro drivers support extensive Avro integration, providing access to all of the Avro data and meta-data needed by enterprise integration or analytics projects. Each driver contains a powerful embedded SQL engine that offers applications easy and high-performance access to all Avro data. In addition, our drivers offer robust authentication and security capabilities, allowing users to connect securely across a wide range of enterprise configurations. Compare drivers and connectors to read more about some of the benefits of CData's driver connectivity.

With our drivers and connectors, every data source is essentially SQL-based. The CData Avro driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into Avro API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to Avro as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to Avro is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that Avro looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live Avro connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

The Avro drivers and connectors offer comprehensive access to Avro data. Our Avro driver exposes static and dynamic data and metadata, providing universal access to Avro data for any enterprise analytics or data mangement use. To explore the Avro driver data model, please review the edition-specific Avro driver documentation.

Using the CData Avro drivers and connectors, Avro can be easily integrated with almost any application. Any software or technology that can integrate with a database or connect with standards-based drivers like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, etc., can use our drivers for live Avro data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular Avro data integrations online.

Avro Analytics is universally supported for BI and data science. In addition, CData provides native client connectors for popular analytics applications like Power BI, Tableau, and Excel that simplify Avro data integration. Additionally, native Python connectors are widely available for data science and data engineering projects that integrate seamlessly with popular tools like Pandas, SQLAlchemy, Dash, and Petl.

Avro data integration is typically enabled with CData Sync, a robust any-to-any data pipeline solution that is easy to set up, runs everywhere, and offers comprehensive enterprise-class features for data engineering. CData Sync makes it easy to replicate Avro data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental Avro replication. In addition, our Avro drivers and connectors can be easily embedded into a wide range of data integration tools to augment existing solutions.

Absolutely. CData offers native Excel Add-Ins for Avro integration. These Add-Ins provide live access to Avro data directly from Microsoft Excel.
