As the world’s leading provider of data connectivity products and solutions, Progress DataDirect builds JDBC drivers that businesses worldwide count on for unequalled performance, dependability, security, and ease of administration.
Progress DataDirect Connect drivers for JDBC are the first in the industry to utilize a revolutionary Type 5 design that overcomes the substantial limitations associated with JDBC driver 4. One of the biggest benefits of the Type 5 breakthrough is in performance and scalability: benchmarking has shown conclusively that Connect Type 5 drivers for JDBC significantly outperform competing JDBC drivers in scalable throughput while also using fewer CPU cycles and less memory.
Drawing from our 20 years of experience with data connectivity technology, Progress DataDirect has developed the industry’s most rigorous testing procedures. Proven in our labs, as well as in some of the world’s largest corporations, Progress DataDirect’s drivers are the most dependable on the market.
Given its central position in your distributed Java application architecture, you should demand failsafe security from your JDBC access driver. With Progress DataDirect Connect drivers for JDBC, industry-standard security technologies like Kerberos authentication and TLS/SSL data encryption are built directly into the driver.
Unlike conventional Type 4 drivers, JDBC Type 5 drivers from Progress DataDirect require only a single JAR file to support multiple JVM and RDBMS versions, and use no proprietary extensions or external libraries. DataDirect Connect JDBC drivers also build in application administration features such as load balancing and application failover.
Progress DataDirect provides superior solutions for any data connectivity scenario, such as JDBC Windows for SQL Server, JDBC for Oracle on Linux, or any other combination of major platform and database type. Our Connect line of drivers also includes ODBC and ADO.NET products, each delivering superior performance and reliability.
Progress also offers high-performance solutions for EDI conversion and other data integration challenges, as well as mainframe BPM and mainframe business events processing for enterprises that employ mainframe architectures.
