In a distributed .NET application using an Oracle back end, your choice of ADO.NET Oracle middleware will have a profound impact on overall application performance and scalability. Database drivers impact application performance on many levels, including disk and network I/O, CPU efficiency, and memory usage. Often what appear to be application performance problems can actually be traced to an under-achieving database driver clogging up the system. In fact, the same .NET application on the same hardware―accessing the same Oracle RDBMS―can often run faster or support more users simply by using a high-performance ADO.NET Oracle data provider. Choosing the right ADO.NET Oracle middleware is especially crucial for mission-critical business applications, applications that handle large quantities of data, and applications that support large numbers of concurrent users.
