Two Ways to Connect

MicroStrategy Cloud customers can connect directly to their on-premises or cloud-based data sources via MicroStrategy Cloud’s Direct Connect option. This option leverages MicroStrategy’s multisource features to support simultaneous connection to multiple data sources. Alternatively, customers can opt to build and host their own database on the MicroStrategy Cloud through integrated database and ETL (extract, transform, and load) options.
