Supported Databases (Data Sources)

SQL-supported databases

Holistics currently support the following SQL databases/ data sources:

  • Amazon Athena
  • Amazon Redshift
  • Clickhouse
  • Databricks
  • Google BigQuery
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Azure DB via Microsoft SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL (version 9.3 or above recommended)
  • Presto
  • Snowflake

Please note that while you can connect to PostgreSQL versions older than 9.3, we cannot guarantee full backward compatibility in those cases.

Since each database has their own unique features, not all functionalities in Holistics are supported across all databases. Below is the matrix table of what we support for each database.

Support for other data sources

For NoSQL data sources (MongoDB, CouchDB, etc) and application data sources (Salesforce, Hubspot, Facebook Ads), we recommend you use a dedicated ETL/EL tool, load the data into your data warehouse, and use Holistics to visualize them.
