HTML (DOM) sourced data
The foundation for DataTables is progressive enhancement, so it is very adept at reading table information directly from the DOM. This example shows how easy it is to add searching, ordering and paging to your HTML table by simply running DataTables on it.

Ajax sourced data
DataTables has the ability to read data from virtually any JSON data source that can be obtained by Ajax. This can be done, in its most simple form, by setting the ajax:option option to the address of the JSON data source.

Javascript sourced data
At times you will wish to be able to create a table from dynamic information passed directly to DataTables, rather than having it read from the document. This is achieved using the data option in the initialisation object, passing in an array of data to be used (like all other DataTables handled data, this can be arrays or objects using thecolumns.data option).A table must be available on the page for DataTables to use. This examples shows an empty table element being initialising as a DataTable with a set of data from a Javascript array. The columns in the table are dynamically created based on the columns.title configuration option.
Server-side processing
There are many ways to get your data into DataTables, and if you are working with seriously large databases, you might want to consider using the server-side options that DataTables provides. With server-side processing enabled, all paging, searching, ordering actions that DataTables performs are handed off to a server where an SQL engine (or similar) can perform these actions on the large data set (after all, that's what the database engine is designed for!). As such, each draw of the table will result in a new Ajax request being made to get the required data.Server-side processing is enabled by setting the serverSide:option option to true and providing an Ajax data source through the ajax:option option.
