GlueSync SQL to NoSQL

Targeting AWS S3 Bucket

Core principles

Objects storage in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) is capable of providing a flexible, scalable and cost effective solution for storing large amount of data in an object format like JSON files.

GlueSync offers the support to store data coming from supported RDBMS into AWS S3 in JSON format using native AWS S3 SDK. Data could be modeled accoridingly to your needs using the data modeling features available in GlueSync and stored in an S3 bucket where it has read & write permissions.

JSON stored in the S3 destination bucket will be stored using the best-practices suggested by Amazon AWS with keyspace support, this means that documents will be stored in folders grouped by source schema and table name, named by their primary key.

Not just documents storage

GlueSync does not only store your object in JSON format: with a specif configuration you can obtain more out from your S3 object storage when it comes to read data through a query engine: you can specify the metadata key-value fields that you would like GlueSync to store as object metadata, this will boost your indexing and document retrieval capabilities when managing large data lakes.

Another useful option, especially if your bucket is intened for cold storage of objects, is the possibility to tell GlueSync to skip any document deletion action in order to preserve them inside the bucket while you are removing this data from your source database.
