Frequently Asked Cosmos DB Driver Questions

Learn more about Cosmos DB drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration


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

Working with a Cosmos DB Driver is different than connecting with Cosmos DB through other means. Cosmos DB 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 Cosmos DB integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our Cosmos DB Drivers offer codeless access to live Cosmos DB data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live Cosmos DB 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 Cosmos DB data. We manage all of the complexities of Cosmos DB integration within each driver and deploy updated drivers as systems evolve so your applications continue to run seamlessly.

If you need truly zero-maintenance integration, check out connectivity to Cosmos DB via CData Connect Cloud. With Connect Cloud you can configure all of your data connectivity in one place and connect to Cosmos DB from any of the available Cloud Drivers and Client Applications. Connectivity to Cosmos DB is managed in the cloud, and you never have to worry about installing new drivers when Cosmos DB is updated.

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

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

Using the CData Cosmos DB drivers and connectors, Cosmos DB 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 Cosmos DB data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular Cosmos DB data integrations online.

Additionally, since Cosmos DB supported by CData Connect Cloud, we enable all kinds of new Cosmos DB cloud integrations.

Cosmos DB Analytics and Cosmos DB Cloud BI integration 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 Cosmos DB 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.

Cosmos DB 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 Cosmos DB data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental Cosmos DB replication. In addition, our Cosmos DB drivers and connectors can be easily embedded into a wide range of data integration tools to augment existing solutions.

Absolutely. The best way to integrate Cosmos DB with Excel is by using the CData Connect Cloud Excel Add-In. The Cosmos DB Excel Add-In provides easy Cosmos DB integration directly from Microsoft Excel Desktop, Mac, or Web (Excel 365). Simply configure your connection to Cosmos DB from the easy-to-use cloud interface, and access Cosmos DB just like you would another native Excel data source.
