Connection to MySQL database hosted with Rackspace

I have a MySQL database hosted with Rackspace that I would like to establish a connection. Has anyone attempted this or can anyone give me advice on how to accomplish? Thank you

Skuid cannot currently connect directly to SQL databases - direct SQL connections are on our near-term roadmap.

For Skuid to connect to a SQL database right now, you would need to setup a REST or OData API to serve as a middle layer between Skuid and the database. The easiest way to do this would be to go through an integration vendor such as Progress DataDirect or Mulesoft.
