Teiid provides the means (i.e., Translators and JEE connectors ) to access a variety of types of data sources. The types of data sources that are currently accessible are:

  1. Databases
  2. Web Services
    • SOAP
    • REST
    • Arbitrary HTTP(S)
  3. OData
  4. Big Data / No SQL / Search Engines / JCR and Other Sources
  5. Enterprise Systems
  6. Object Sources
  7. LDAP
    • RedHat Directory Server
    • Active Directory
  8. Files
  9. Spreadsheets

This represents data sources that have been validated to work using the available translators and connectors. However, this does not preclude a new data source from working. If a data source has a JDBC driver, Teiid can connect and easily issue SQL-92 based queries. If there is any custom SQL or functions that are needed to be supported, then an existing translator can be extended or a new translator can be created using the Translator Development extensions.

Take a look at the list of Translators that are used as the bridge between Teiid and the external system.

    How is Amazon Redshift supported, thru which translator?

    1. Mar 26, 2015

      Functionally a Redshift instance of whatever database is no different than any other. The same client driver etc.

    Should Amazon RDS be mentioned here and indicate that the appropriate translator should be used based on the underlying provisioned RDBMS being used?

    1. Oct 08, 2015

      I answered the previous comment thinking of RDS... You can certainly add a note anywhere appropriate about RDS.

      As for the original question of Redshift some have used the pg translator with the red shift driver, but there's been no full testing so another translator could be needed at some point.
