PostgreSQL ODBC Driver

PostgreSQL ODBC Driver は、ODBC 接続をサポートするさまざまなアプリケーションからPostgreSQL データへの接続を実現するパワフルなツールです。

標準のODBC ドライバーインターフェースを通じて、バーチャルにどこからでもPostgreSQL データベースにアクセスします。

CData ODBC Driver for PostgreSQL とSQL Server 2019 のPolyBase を使って、リアルタイムPostgreSQL data に外部データソースとしてアクセス。

SQL Server のPolyBase は、データベーステーブルをクエリするTransact-SQL シンタックスを使って、外部データにクエリする仕組みです。 CData ODBC Drivers for PostgreSQL data を組み合わせて使うことで、SQL Server データと同じようにPostgreSQL data へのアクセスが可能です。 本記事では、PolyBase 外部データソースへのPostgreSQL data の設定から、T-SQL クエリを使ったPostgreSQL data へのアクセスを行います。

The CData ODBC drivers offer unmatched performance for interacting with live PostgreSQL data using PolyBase due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When you issue complex SQL queries from SQL Server to PostgreSQL, the driver pushes down supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to PostgreSQL and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations (often SQL functions and JOIN operations) client-side. And with PolyBase, you can also join SQL Server data with PostgreSQL data, using a single query to pull data from distributed sources.

PostgreSQL への接続

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs. To create an external data source in SQL Server using PolyBase, configure a System DSN (CData PostgreSQL Sys is created automatically).

PostgreSQL への接続には、Server、Port(デフォルトは5432)、Database、およびUser、Password のプロパティを設定します。Database プロパティが設定されない場合には、User のデフォルトデータベースに接続します。

Click "Test Connection" to ensure that the DSN is connected to PostgreSQL properly. Navigate to the Tables tab to review the table definitions for PostgreSQL.

PostgreSQL Data の外部データソースの作成

After configuring the connection, you need to create a master encryption key and a credential database for the external data source.

Creating a Master Encryption Key

Execute the following SQL command to create a new master key, 'ENCRYPTION,' to encrypt the credentials for the external data source.


Creating a Credential Database

Execute the following SQL command to create credentials for the external data source connected to PostgreSQL data.

NOTE: IDENTITY and SECRET correspond with the User and Password properties for PostgreSQL.

WITH IDENTITY = 'username', SECRET = 'password';

Create an External Data Source for PostgreSQL

Execute the following SQL command to create an external data source for PostgreSQL with PolyBase, using the DSN and credentials configured earlier.

NOTE: SERVERNAME and PORT corresponds to the Server and Port connection properties for PostgreSQL. PUSHDOWN is set to ON by default, meaning the ODBC Driver can leverage server-side processing for complex queries.

CREATE EXTERNAL DATA SOURCE cdata_postgresql_source
  CREDENTIAL = postgresql_creds

PostgreSQL のExternal Table を作成

After creating the external data source, use CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE statements to link to PostgreSQL data from your SQL Server instance. The table column definitions must match those exposed by the CData ODBC Driver for PostgreSQL. You can refer to the Tables tab of the DSN Configuration Wizard to see the table definition.

Sample CREATE TABLE Statement

The statement to create an external table based on a PostgreSQL Orders would look similar to the following:

  ShipName [nvarchar](255) NULL,
  ShipCity [nvarchar](255) NULL,
) WITH ( 

Having created external tables for PostgreSQL in your SQL Server instance, you are now able to query local and remote data simultaneously. Thanks to built-in query processing in the CData ODBC Driver, you know that as much query processing as possible is being pushed to PostgreSQL, freeing up local resources and computing power.
