CloudConnect is a legacy tool and will be discontinued. We recommend that to prepare your data you use the GoodData data pipeline as described in Data Preparation and Distribution.
CloudConnect can use two modes for loading data to the GoodData platform using the GD Dataset Writer component:
- Sequential mode loads data for each dataset separately.
- Batch mode loads data for multiple datasets in one process. Batch mode allows for faster data upload and is the recommended option for CloudConnect.
In the latest versions of CloudConnect (see the table below for details), batch mode is the default loading mode for both local Cloud Connect runs and runs on the GoodData platform.
For backward compatibility, older CloudConnect versions and also projects belonging to older tokens (see the table below for details) have sequential mode as the default loading mode, with an option to switch to batch mode, if needed.
We strongly recommend that you use batch mode as the default loading mode, and use sequential mode only for certain graphs, when absolutely necessary.
The following table describes options and solutions on how you can switch between the modes depending on what version of CloudConnect you are using and when your token was created.
