Database Gateway provides the connection service for remote access to private databases. Through Database Gateway, you can use applications or cloud services to access and manage your on-premises databases or databases from other cloud service providers.
Database Gateway works as follows:
- Database Gateway Agent is installed locally.
- Database Gateway Agent establishes secure and trusted channels with Database Gateway Cloud Service. Channels established by different accounts and database gateways are isolated from each other.
- When you use a cloud database service such as Data Management or Database Backup to access your private on-premises database, the database service accesses your on-premises network through the established channel.
