Frequently Asked SFTP Driver Questions

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

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

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

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

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

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

SFTP 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 SFTP 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.

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