How to Get Better ODBC Oracle Performance
To effectively manage today's "big data" you need top-flight performance from all the major segments of your enterprise service architecture, including your data access middleware. In an ODBC Oracle data access environment, the overall performance of your applications and services will depend critically on the performance of your ODBC Oracle data drivers. ODBC Oracle drivers from Progress DataDirect, the data connectivity specialists, outperform all other drivers on the market including the drivers that Oracle bundles with its database distributions.
DataDirect ODBC Oracle Drivers: More Data, Faster
Benchmark tests consistently show that DataDirect Connect® database ODBC drivers deliver the best throughput and response time, outperforming competing drivers by 20% to 500%. Several design and engineering features enable DataDirect ODBC drivers to deliver consistently better Oracle performance than Oracle's own ODBC drivers:
- DataDirect's ODBC Oracle driver uses an innovative wire protocol architecture that eliminates the need to deploy Oracle SQL *Net client libraries on the driver host machines. This more efficient communication design means you get better data throughput and service response time – not to mention simplified set-up and maintenance.
- DataDirect builds tunable performance optimization features directly into its ODBC Oracle drivers. Without any special application coding required, your service architecture can benefit from driver-implemented performance-boosting features such as connection pooling, statement pooling, and load balancing.
- DataDirect ODBC Oracle drivers include a high-performance bulk load capability that invokes Oracle bulk insert operations without requiring the Oracle SQL Loader tool. DataDirect's driver-implemented solution for Oracle bulk load can insert more data quicker than the combination of Oracle's own driver and its loader tool.
- Whereas dependence on client libraries keeps Oracle's own drivers from fully supporting 64-bit applications, the DataDirect Connect ODBC Oracle 64-bit driver takes full advantage of 64-bit processing speeds.
DataDirect Delivers ODBC Oracle Solutions for Any Environment
DataDirect offers top-performing Oracle drivers for every major platform, including Windows and Linux as well as Oracle ODBC Unix middleware for Sun Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX, and more. A single DataDirect ODBC Oracle driver supports multiple Oracle versions including 8i, 9i, 10g, and 11g, making the DataDirect ODBC Oracle solution simple to deploy and maintain.
