The MaxCompute platform supports a wide range of data upload and download tools. The source code for most of the tools can be found on GitHub, the open-source community to upload and download the data. You can select the tool according to the scenario. The tools are divided into two types: Alibaba Cloud DTplus products and open-source products. This article helps you learn more about these tools.

Alibaba Cloud DTplus products

  • Data integration of DataWorks

    Data Integration, or data synchronization, of DataWorks is a stable, efficient, and scalable data synchronization platform provided by Alibaba Cloud. It is designed to provide full offline and incremental real-time data synchronization, integration, and exchange services for the heterogeneous data storage systems on Alibaba Cloud.

    Data synchronization tasks support the following data types: MaxCompute, RDS (MySQL, SQL Server, and PostgreSQL), Oracle, FTP, AnalyticDB (ADS), OSS, Memcache, and DRDS. For more information, see Data synchronization introduction, and for methods of use, see Create a data synchronization task.

  • MaxCompute console
    Note
    This is an open-source aliyun-odps-console.
  • DTS

    Data Transmission (DTS) is a data service provided by Alibaba Cloud that supports data exchanges between RDBMS, NoSQL, OLAP, and other data sources. It provides data migration, real-time data subscription, real-time data synchronization, and other data transmission features.

    DTS supports data synchronization from ApsaraDB for RDS and MySQL instances to MaxCompute tables. Currently, other data source types are not supported.

Open-source products

  • Sqoop

    As a tool developed based on the Sqoop 1.4.6 community, Sqoop provides enhanced MaxCompute support with the ability to import and export data from MySQL and other relational databases to MaxCompute tables. Data in HDFS/Hive can also be imported to MaxCompute tables.

    Note
    This is an open-source aliyun-maxcompute-data-collectors.
  • Kettle

    Kettle is an open-source ETL tool based on Java which can run on Windows, Unix, or Linux. It provides graphic interfaces for you to easily define data transmission topology using drag-and-drop components.

    Note
    This is an open-source aliyun-maxcompute-data-collectors.
  • Flume

    Apache Flume is a distributed and reliable system, which efficiently collects, aggregates, and moves massive volumes of log data from different data sources to a centralized data storage system. It supports multiple Source and Sink plugins.

    The DataHub Sink plug-in of Apache Flume allows you to upload log data to DataHub in real time and archive the data in the MaxCompute tables.

    Note
    This is an open-source aliyun-maxcompute-data-collectors.
  • Fluentd

    Fluentd is an open-source software product that collects logs, including Application Logs, System Logs, and Access Logs, from various sources. It allows you to select plug-ins to filter and store log data to different data processors, including MySQL, Oracle, MongoDB, Hadoop, and Treasure Data.

    The DataHub plug-in of Fluentd allows you to upload data to DataHub in real time and archive the data in MaxCompute tables. 

  • LogStash

    Logstash is an open-source log collection and processing framework. The logstash-output-datahub plugin allows you to import data to DataHub. This tool can be easily configured to collect and transmit data. When used together with MaxCompute or StreamCompute, it allows you to easily create an all-in-one streaming data solution right from data collection to analysis.

    The DataHub plug-in of Logstash allows you to upload data to DataHub in real time and archive the data in MaxCompute tables.

  • OGG

    The DataHub plug-in of OGG allows you to incrementally synchronize the Oracle database data to DataHub in real time and archive the data in MaxCompute tables.

    Note
    This is an open-source aliyun-maxcompute-data-collectors.
