Import Greenplum Data into SQL Server using SSIS

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

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 Greenplum inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Greenplum data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

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

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Greenplum 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 Greenplum. The CData Greenplum Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    To connect to Greenplum, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the default database for the authenticate user is used.

Configure the Greenplum Source

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

  1. Double-click the Greenplum 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 Freight, ShipName FROM Orders WHERE ShipCountry = USA
  4. Close the Greenplum 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 Greenplum 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 Greenplum data.
