Tetra Connectors

Tetra Connectors provide built-in data integration with specific instruments or systems. They offer similar functionality as Tetra Agents, but are containerized applications that can run either on-premises or in the cloud. After the data is uploaded to the Tetra Scientific Data and AI Cloud, it can then be processed by a pipeline, translated into a Tetra Data model, and integrated with other systems.

For more information about the different types of Tetra Integrations, see Tetra Integrations. For additional best practices, see Data Integration in the TetraConnect Hub. For access, see Access the TetraConnect Hub.

Connector Types

The TDP currently supports two Connector types, which offer the same functionality, but different levels of customization:

  • Legacy Connectors are tightly coupled with the TDP and must be upgraded in conjunction with TDP releases.
  • Pluggable Connectors can be deployed independent of a TDP release. For more information, see Create, Configure, and Update Pluggable Connectors.

Connector Deployment Options

You can deploy Connectors in two ways:

For more TDP networking best practices, see Recommended Architectures for Network Connectivity to Private Cloud and On-Premises Components in the TetraConnect Hub. For access, see Access the TetraConnect Hub.

Supported Tetra Connectors

The TDP currently supports the following Legacy Connectors. For information about which Connector versions are eligible for patches and customer engineering support, see Tetra Integrations Support.
