Database Connect Error
Making the Database Connect Error Rare and Easy to Handle
Database connect error problems can bring services to a halt and send administrators searching for insights. Progress DataDirect's standards-based data drivers reduce the incidence of the database connect error and make errors easier for applications and administrators to handle when they do occur.
The Database Connect Error Made Rare
One way to reduce database connectivity error frequency is to leave database connectivity tasks to software that's built specifically for that purpose. At DataDirect, for more than 20 years we've focused exclusively on designing and building high-performance, highly reliable data connectivity middleware. Our ADO.NET, ODBC, and JDBC data drivers are subjected to the industry's most rigorous testing regimen, achieving such a high degree of reliability that more than 300 independent software vendors embed DataDirect components in their commercial products.
Database connect error incidence is reduced when database connectivity is handled by software built and exhaustively tested for just that purpose. The likelihood of database connect error problems is also lessened when the applications initiating database communications are simplified. DataDirect's standards-based data drivers allow an application to connect to and communicate with different database types and versions, without any need to customize application code. This interoperability makes for more streamlined applications and fewer errors.
By employing DataDirect's ADO.NET, ODBC, or JDBC connection drivers, applications are also spared the need to implement enterprise connectivity logic like connection pool management, load balancing, and automatic failover, since all of this functionality is supplied by the driver itself.
The Database Connect Error Made Easy to Handle
When a database connect error or other type of database error occurs, DataDirect drivers make things easy on applications by mapping vendor-specific error numbers and messages to ANSI standard messages. For example, rather than needing to handle the differing database connect error messages that Oracle, SQL Sever, and Sybase return for an "invalid password" condition, DataDirect drivers return a consistent message for this error regardless of the type of database that's being accessed.
When you do encounter an ADO.NET, JDBC, or ODBC error that you're having trouble with, DataDirect offers 24x7 technical support by phone, web, or email, with support staff whose primary expertise is data connectivity issues.
