This webinar is a technical overview of the MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine
The MariaDB CONNECT Storage Engine allows to access various file formats (CSV, XML, Excel, etc). It give access to any ODBC data sources (Oracle, DB2, SQLServer, etc). It also allows to access remote MySQL tables or ODBC tables.
A CONNECT table itself can be a set of remote MySQL tables. This opens the door to interesting distributed architectures that can help to address big data.
SQL requests can be executed in parallel against these CONNECT distributed tables
