Frequently Asked Databricks Driver Questions

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


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

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

By comparison, our Databricks Drivers offer codeless access to live Databricks data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live Databricks 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 Databricks data. We manage all of the complexities of Databricks 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 Databricks via CData Connect Cloud. With Connect Cloud you can configure all of your data connectivity in one place and connect to Databricks from any of the available Cloud Drivers and Client Applications. Connectivity to Databricks is managed in the cloud, and you never have to worry about installing new drivers when Databricks 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 Databricks, 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 Databricks driver offers full-featured Databricks data connectivity. The CData Databricks drivers support extensive Databricks integration, providing access to all of the Databricks 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 Databricks 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 Databricks driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into Databricks API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to Databricks as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to Databricks is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that Databricks looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live Databricks connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

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

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

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

Databricks Analytics and Databricks 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 Databricks 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.

Databricks 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 Databricks data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental Databricks replication. In addition, our Databricks 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 Databricks with Excel is by using the CData Connect Cloud Excel Add-In. The Databricks Excel Add-In provides easy Databricks integration directly from Microsoft Excel Desktop, Mac, or Web (Excel 365). Simply configure your connection to Databricks from the easy-to-use cloud interface, and access Databricks just like you would another native Excel data source.
