Oracle Bulk Load
How DataDirect Drivers Save You Time on Oracle Bulk Load Operations
For many IT shops, performing Oracle bulk load operations is a regular part of doing business. Often the preparation and execution of these operations consume substantial staff time and system resources. Progress DataDirect drivers for ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.NET can reduce the time that your team and your systems have to spend on Oracle bulk load.
Faster Oracle Bulk Load Performance
Benchmarking tests prove that Progress DataDirect Connect® drivers are the best-performing drivers made. Our ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.NET drivers for Oracle and other major databases feature built-in advance bulk load capabilities that further elevate performance when you need to insert very large numbers of records into a database as quickly as possible.
- Can insert twice as many rows in the same amount of time, compared to the drivers' regular industry-leading performance.
- Outperform a competitor's bulk load tool by 20% when doing an Oracle bulk load from an external file.
- Dramatically outperform Oracle's own utility, Oracle SQL Loader, when executing an Oracle bulk load from an external file.
- Make it easy to stream or "pipeline" large amounts of data directly into Oracle from another type of DB, without having to use an intermediary Oracle bulk load data file.
Simpler Oracle Bulk Load Operation and Application Development
Progress DataDirect drivers present applications with a standards-based, DB-independent API for bulk loading. This enables you to write simple applications or utilities that can invoke bulk export and bulk insert operations across all major types of DBs including Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, and many more, as well as cloud data stores such as Salesforce and Database.com. Behind the scenes, your DataDirect ODBC, JDBC, or ADO.NET drivers for those databases translate the DB-independent bulk loading calls into DB-specific calls.
To save you even more time on your Oracle bulk load operations, Progress DataDirect drivers include sample bulk load applications, complete with customizable source code. One of the sample apps is a bulk streaming GUI that lets you pipeline mass amounts of data from one DataDirect driver-connected DB to another, simply by entering the SELECT operation that you want to run against the source DB and adding the EnableBulkLoad attribute to the destination DB's ODBC connection string or JDBC connection string.
Now that's Oracle bulk load made fast and easy.
