Import Amazon S3 Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Amazon S3 data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Amazon S3.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for Amazon S3 inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Amazon S3 data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new Amazon S3 source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Amazon S3 connection properties in a connection manager.

  1. In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. In the Connection Manager type menu, select AmazonS3. The CData Amazon S3 Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure 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 Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Amazon S3 data.

  1. Double-click the Amazon S3 source to open the source component editor.
  2. In the Connection Manager menu, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. Specify the query to use for the data extraction. For example: SELECT Name, OwnerId FROM ObjectsACL WHERE Name = 'TestBucket'
  4. Close the Amazon S3 Source control and connect it to the ADO.NET Destination.

Configure the SQL Server Destination

Follow the steps below to specify the SQL server table to load the Amazon S3 data into.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Destination and add a New Connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "table or view".
  3. In the Table Or View menu, select the table or view to populate.
  4. Configure any properties you wish to on the Mappings screen.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, your database will be populated with Amazon S3 data.
