Client Connections

Overview

SkySQL database services are queried over client connections.

This page describes how to connect to most SkySQL services using a MariaDB-compatible client.

  • For Serverless Analytics services, see "Serverless Analytics" or "Notebook".

  • For Enterprise Server With Replica(s), the NoSQL Interface is an alternative way to connect to the database service.

  • Query Editor allows you to run queries directly in the browser to interact with data stored in SkySQL databases.
