The MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine allows to access various file formats (CSV, XML, Excel, etc). It gives access to any ODBC data sources (Oracle, DB2, SQLServer, etc). It also allows to access remote MySQL tables. A CONNECT table itself can be a set of remote MySQL tables. These tables can be accessed using MySQL partitioning capability. This opens the door to interesting distributed architectures that can help to simplify data access. We will show practical examples of how the MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine can help you get benefits from your existing data sources. When it comes to heterogeneous data the answer is not simple and the MariaDB CONNECT storage engine introduces a new range of possibilities.
