Database middleware, whether ODBC for SQL Server or any other type of driver, plays a major and often underestimated role in the overall performance of distributed applications. Your ODBC for SQL Server driver will impact many aspects of your application performance including disk and network I/O, CPU efficiency, and memory usage. The same distributed application, on the same hardware, will run faster or slower and support more or fewer concurrent users depending on your ODBC for SQL Server middleware. Choosing the best ODBC for SQL Server solution is pivotal for mission-critical business applications, applications that process large quantities of data, or applications that are counted on by a large number of users.
