ODBC Driver Sybase
DataDirect's ODBC Sybase Driver: Faster and More Reliable than the ODBC Driver Sybase Makes
For enterprise architectures that include Sybase databases, Progress DataDirect's ODBC driver for Sybase delivers far more value than the ODBC driver Sybase distributes. Compared to the Sybase ASE ODBC driver, the DataDirect Connect® ODBC driver for Sybase provides better performance, greater reliability, broader feature support, and easier administration.
Better Performance than the ODBC Driver Sybase Provides
In today's "big data" environment, your ODBC connection middleware is asked to handle more volume at greater velocity than ever before. DataDirect drivers deliver greater ODBC data throughput than any other driver on the market, while using system resources more efficiently. DataDirect's ODBC driver for Sybase outperforms the ODBC driver Sybase distributes because DataDirect's driver uses a unique wire protocol that eliminates the need for Sybase Open Client libraries. Doing away with this extra communication layer improves database ODBC throughput and response time.
DataDirect's ODBC performance also benefits from enterprise features built into the driver like load balancing, configurable connection pool management, and advanced bulk loading capabilities.
Greater Reliability Across Broader Functionality
Data driver failures can quickly translate to big problems in the form of service downtime or corrupted data. To handle your mission-critical data flows, you need drivers that you can trust completely. DataDirect has led the data connectivity market for 20 years, and no drivers are more rigorously tested or more widely deployed in demanding production environments. By contrast, the ODBC driver Sybase provides with its version 15 database is new to the market and has a completely re-built code base.
Fuller support for standards also helps to ensure that DataDirect's ODBC driver for Sybase will deliver more predictable, trouble-free performance than the ODBC driver Sybase distributes. Compared with the Sybase ASE ODBC driver, the DataDirect ODBC Sybase driver provides more comprehensive ODBC API call support and fuller and more reliable ODBC data type handling. DataDirect drivers also provide fully standardized ODBC error handling, helping interoperability in environments that use more than one type of database.
Easier Administration than the ODBC Driver Sybase Distributes
Because DataDirect's ODBC driver for Sybase does not require the Sybase Open Client libraries, it's easier to deploy and maintain than the Sybase ASE ODBC driver. The DataDirect driver also comes with the market-leading DataDirect ODBC Driver Manager for Unix and Linux platforms, while Sybase's driver requires you to obtain and install a separate ODBC driver manager when the driver is run on Linux.
