SQL Query is a serverless service to read data in Cloud Object Storage, process it with full standard SQL syntax, and write the results to Cloud Object Storage or Db2. With SQL Query you analyze and process the data where it is stored - there is no ETL, no databases, and no infrastructure to manage.
Transform data to prepare it for all disciplines of AI by changing data content, granularity, format, and layout on disk.
Quick SQL access and easy data exploration
Query server logs, click-stream data, IoT messages, or raw analytics events using SQL directly on the files where you store them in Cloud Object Storage. Run ad-hoc SQL queries against fresh data before the data has moved through the pipeline and into the reporting stack.
Querying of archived data
Use SQL to query structured data archived from legacy systems, databases (for example, NoSQL), and/or data warehouses in Cloud Object Storage.
Integrate with your applications
Run SQLs from your application using the rich API ecosystem, comprising REST API, Python SDK, Node SDK, and IBM Cloud Function interface.
