Managed Database Service (MDS)

Platform by FactSet

Added to Marketplace: August 9, 2022


Take advantage of a direct, secure connection to a Microsoft Azure hosted SQL Server database to seamlessly query Open:FactSet datafeeds without the need for dedicated infrastructure with this managed database service. Multiple sizing options allow you to select the scale that fits your team's requirements.

Easily upload to and download from the Azure hosted managed database. Integrate the Open:FactSet data with your own internal applications and servers or build your own data warehouse in the cloud. Use the data analysis tools you work with every day to interact directly with FactSet, third-party, and internal data.

Advance from discovery (via Open:FactSet Marketplace), to trial, to implementation with Managed Database Service. Use MDS in conjunction with, or independent from, FactSet's Data Exploration product to trial datafeeds or to implement them in a local production manner.
