Frequently Asked Google Spanner Driver Questions

Learn more about Google Spanner drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration


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

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

By comparison, our Google Spanner Drivers offer codeless access to live Google Spanner data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner data. We manage all of the complexities of Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner, 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 Google Spanner driver offers full-featured Google Spanner data connectivity. The CData Google Spanner drivers support extensive Google Spanner integration, providing access to all of the Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into Google Spanner API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to Google Spanner as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to Google Spanner is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that Google Spanner looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live Google Spanner connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

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

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

Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner 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.

Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental Google Spanner replication. In addition, our Google Spanner 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 Google Spanner integration. These Add-Ins provide live access to Google Spanner data directly from Microsoft Excel.
