DAC as a Service Deployment Option

For organizations that wish to offload their operational overhead of hosting a DAC, Satori provides a DAC as a service deployment option. Organizations do not have to manage compute, storage or worry about software upgrades and patching, as they are handled by Satori and fully transparent.

Organizations use a DAC in the same public cloud region as the data store, and data never traverses outside of the region. DAC as a service supports any type of data store, IaaS, PaaS and DBaaS.

IaaS and PaaS Data Stores

For data stores hosted in the organization's VPC, like AWS Redshift or AWS RDS.


DBaaS Data Stores

Operational Model

Customer Hosted DAC Deployment

Designed for organizations that require ownership for all aspects of operating a Satori DAC, Satori provides a customer-hosted DAC option.

Customer-hosted DACs are identical to SaaS DACs. The customer is required to download, deploy and upgrade the software, as well as maintain the infrastructure that the DAC requires.


Before the customer-hosted DACs can be deployed in the customer environment Satori must to approve and authorize each DAC. The status of customer-hosted DACs in the customer account can be viewed in the Data Access Controllers page of the Settings section.

On the same page, customers can download available software versions. The deployment package contains a Helm chart that is generated by the management console for each DAC. The package contains a readme.txt document with detailed installation instructions.
