Remote datasets

Remote datasets act differently from the other types in the sense that Rational BI stores no database. Instead, data requests and queries are proxied by Rational BI through the dataset to a source server that evaluates the query and returns a response to the requester.

This type of dataset does not have any databases to transfer which means that the amount of data sent to the data consumer’s web browser is reduced and that the latest data is always used. However, remote datasets can put additional strain on the source database.
