Connecting to Informatica Cloud

Setting up a MemSQL connection in Informatica Cloud involves two simple steps:

  1. Install and Configure an Informatica Cloud Secure Agent
  2. Create a Connection to a MemSQL cluster in Informatica Cloud

Step 1: Installing And Configuring An Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

The first step is to install and configure the Informatica Secure Agent. Note that this agent may be installed on a machine of your choosing and does not need to be co-located with your MemSQL cluster. A single Secure Agent may be used to connect to multiple MemSQL clusters.

The first step in this process is to download the most recent Secure Agent. To do so, select the Configure button from the top toolbar and choose Runtime Environments.


Click on the Download Secure Agent button to download the most recent version of the agent. Once you have downloaded the agent, detailed steps on how to install it may be found here.

Once installed and configured, your agent will be displayed in the list of Runtime Environments.
