Oracle Bulk Insert
Oracle Bulk Insert Made Faster, Simpler, and More Reliable
Data warehousing, backup, and migration are just a few of the routine IT tasks that may require Oracle bulk insert operations. Progress DataDirect database drivers can help you manage these tasks more easily and effectively. DataDirect Connect® ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.NET drivers for Oracle feature built-in bulk loading functionality that makes Oracle bulk insert faster, simpler, and more reliable.
Oracle Bulk Insert Made Faster
When it comes to importing large amounts of data into Oracle from a file, a DataDirect Oracle ODBC driver or Oracle JDBC driver with bulk loading enabled inserts more data faster than Oracle's own bulk load tool (SQL Loader) as well as competing third party tools. In recent benchmarking, DataDirect's in-driver bulk load functionality was able to bulk insert 20% more data in the same time as a competitor's bulk load tool, even though the competitor's tool had been configured for maximum performance.
Further, with DataDirect drivers you have the option of doing a streaming Oracle bulk insert that pipelines data from a source DB into Oracle without need for an intermediary data file. DataDirect drivers come with a customizable sample application that make it easy to perform this type of Oracle bulk load using a GUI.
Oracle Bulk Insert Made Simpler
With the bulk streaming GUI application that accompanies your DataDirect drivers, you just specify the input DB source and an input SELECT statement, add the EnableBulkLoad attribute to your destination Oracle DB's ODBC connection string or JDBC connection string, click a button – and you've launched a high-performance streaming Oracle bulk insert operation.
Better yet, DataDirect drivers provide an industry-standard based bulk load API that makes any applications or tools you write interoperable across all major databases. With DataDirect as your database connectivity middleware, the exact same code that triggers an Oracle bulk insert operation can also be used to execute bulk loading into SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, Informix, MySQL, and so on.
Oracle Bulk Insert Made More Reliable
DataDirect's Oracle JDBC, ODBC, and ADO.NET drivers make your Oracle bulk insert operations more reliable with features like:
- Pre-load verification functionality that lets you check in advance whether a particular data file can be smoothly imported into the target table, or if there are red flags that merit your attention.
- Robust and consistent error handling across different DB types and versions.
- Reliable conversion between character sets – something that's often lacking in database vendors' bulk load tools.
