Power and Flexibility
A Myriad of Cloud-based Data Warehouse and ETL Services
for Your Specific BI Needs
Two Ways to Connect
MicroStrategy Cloud customers can connect directly to their on-premises or cloud-based data sources via MicroStrategy Cloud’s Direct Connect option. Alternatively, customers can opt to build and host their own database on the MicroStrategy Cloud through integrated database and data integration options.
You Don’t Have to Move Your Data!
With MicroStrategy’s Direct Connect technology, users can connect and analyze compatible databases wherever they’re located, without compromising performance, whether source data is located on-premises or in other cloud-based systems. This is enabled by MicroStrategy features including push-down analytics, multi-pass SQL support, intelligent caching, and in-memory cubes, which work together to reduce the frequency of remote database queries and the narrow size of result sets that need to travel across the internet from a remote data source to the MicroStrategy Cloud.
High Speed Infrastructure
Complementing MicroStrategy’s high-efficiency Direct Connect technology, primary MicroStrategy Cloud data center facilities are strategically situated on regional internet telecom backbones and employ dual 10GB connections for low latency and high bandwidth. Highly secure, dedicated VPN-based Direct Connect is available as a premium service.
