How It Works

Provider for Skyvia Connect connects to SQL endpoints, created and hosted on Skyvia Service. It uses HTTPS protocol for sending queries and retrieving data.

Skyvia connects to data sources either directly (for data sources, available from the Internet) or via the Agent application (for on-premises data). For direct connections, Skyvia uses the corresponding data source API/protocol. For connecting via agent, the HTTPS protocol is used.

Skyvia Gateway ADO.NET Provider vs Native ADO.NET Provider

Our ADO.NET provider can offer the following benefits:

One Provider for Many Data Sources

No need to install a separate ADO.NET provider for each data source, use the same software for unified access to any data.

Additional Security Layer

Configure user accounts for endpoint on Skyvia, no need to provide credentials to your data source.

Detailed Logging

All the endpoint requests are logged on Skyvia, so you can easily analyze query execution performance, error messages, traffic spent, etc.

Cost Effective Pricing

When using Skyvia Connect SQL endpoints and the corresponding ADO.NET provider, you pay for traffic via your endpoints. The provider itself is completely free, and you can create endpoints for as many data sources, as you need. Only the total traffic via your endpoints is counted.

Skyvia uses pay-as-you-go model with several pricing plans for different monthly traffic volumes. Note that security features are not included in the lower pricing plans.
