Connecting to Data Sources

For Tecton to successfully read your data, Tecton requires the proper permissions and configuration. Permissions and configuration can vary per data source.

Supported Data Sources

Tecton currently supports the following data batch data sources:

  • CSV, Parquet, and JSON Data Sources on S3
  • Hive Tables via AWS Glue Data Catalog
  • AWS Redshift Tables
  • Snowflake Tables

Tecton currently supports the following stream data sources:

  • AWS Kinesis Streams
  • Kafka Topics

The Tecton team continually adds support for new data sources. If you need to use a data source that isn't listed above, reach out to support.

Once Tecton has the permissions needed to access the data sources, it must be registered in Tecton as a VirtualDataSource using the Tecton CLI. See the documentation on VirtualDataSource.
