This section describes how the provider models the Amazon S3 API as relational Views
- The provider models Amazon S3 buckets, bucket information, and objects as relational views, allowing you to write SQL to query Amazon S3 data.
- Stored procedures allow you to execute operations to Amazon S3, including downloading and uploading objects.
- Live connectivity to these objects means any changes to your Amazon S3 account are immediately reflected when using the provider.
Generally, querying Amazon S3 tables is the same as querying a table in a relational database. Sometimes there are special cases, for example, including a certain column in the WHERE clause might be required to get data for certain columns in the table. This is typically needed for situations where a separate request must be made for each row to get certain columns.
Views are composed of columns and pseudo columns. Views are similar to tables in the way that data is represented; however, views do not support updates. Entities that are represented as views are typically read-only entities. Often, a stored procedure is available to update the data if such functionality is applicable to the data source.
|Buckets||Tables||Returns information for buckets. Buckets are used to store objects, which consist of data and its metadata.|
|Objects||Tables||Returns information for objects inside a specific bucket.|
