Data extract/import

Virtual connections can be leveraged to extract/import data into data.world. Any data imported into data.world will often benefit from query performance improvements if it is in a small or medium size dataset (i.e., under 3GB). We recommend larger amounts of data be separated into multiple datasets, or accessed via virtualization instead. Data in data.world datasets is kept securely in encrypted data stores.


Some customers choose to disable the ability to extract and import data to prevent any data from being persisted in data.world for compliance or other reasons. The decision to allow or disallow extract/import is fully in the hands of the customer.
