DBHawk enjoys growth in the cloud
The cloud has become the default database deployment option in 2021, giving businesses more ways to store their data. This cloud migration is proving to be a boon for DataSparc and its DBHawk tool, which allows users to access multiple databases from a single location, including Redshift and now Snowflake.
DBHawk was designed to allow customers to query data wherever it resides, whether it is a relational database or a NoSQL datastore, and whether it is running on site or in the cloud. With so many new databases appearing in the cloud, the company is seeing demand for its product increase, according to Manish Shah, founder and CEO of Datasparc.
“Many customers are looking for tools to access databases running on-premises and in the cloud, such as AWS RDS, Redshift, and Azure SQL,” Shah explains. Datanami. “Besides DBHawk, there is no single tool that works with a hybrid infrastructure and provides secure access to databases through SAML, ADFS, and AD authentication methods.”
Earlier this year, DataSparc became a technology partner of choice at Amazon Web Services, which means DBHawk has received the blessing of AWS to access Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and Amazon Redshift, its hosted data warehousing solution.
The San Diego, California-based company also supports Snowflake, giving its users the ability to query one of the fastest growing cloud data warehouses.
In addition to AWS and Snowflake databases, DBHawk supports Cassandra, MongoDB, Oraclethe eponymous database of, Microsoft SQL Server, Postgres, MySQL, SAP HANA, Vertica and Teradata databases, among others.
Currently, the company is developing a new feature that will streamline the configuration of database access. Currently, Database Administrators must perform manual configuration to allow Datasparc users to access selected datasets.
The company wants to use machine learning technology to identify sensitive data sets, such as credit card information, that should be excluded from data access policies. The software will make suggestions to the administrator on what data items to avoid, and then the administrator will approve or reject the change.
In addition to protecting the sensitive data of Datasparc’s power tool, it will also help customers comply with industry regulations, such as FISMA, FERPA, GDPR, HIPAA and PCI.
DBHawk is a browser-based tool used for ad hoc reporting as well as online SQL editing. Datasparc offers it under a corporate license, in which customers run it on their own servers, as well as through a SaaS subscription. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.datasparc.com.
