Export Data from SQL Server to Amazon S3 through SSIS

Easily push SQL Server data to Amazon S3 using the CData SSIS Tasks for Amazon S3.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for Amazon S3 allows you to easily transfer Amazon S3 data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to Amazon S3.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new Amazon S3 Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into Amazon S3.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for Amazon S3

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData AmazonS3 Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    To authorize Amazon S3 requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions. Set AccessKey to the access key Id. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.

    Note: You can connect as the AWS account administrator, but it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

    For information on obtaining the credentials and other authentication methods, refer to the Getting Started section of the Help documentation.

Configure the Amazon S3 Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the Amazon S3 destination table and the action you want to perform on the Amazon S3 data. In this article, you will insert ObjectsACL entities to Amazon S3.

  1. Double-click the Amazon S3 destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. In the Use a Table, menu, select ObjectsACL. In the Action menu, select Insert.
  4. On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
