DATA CONNECTIVITY PRODUCT FEATURES
Progress DataDirect Connect and OpenAccess database drivers offer many advanced, enterprise-class features that are 100%-driver implemented, requiring no special database vendor tools or client libraries.
DataDirect Connect drivers and providers provide an unparalleled set of features that provide critical development, run-time and production benefits.
DataDirect drivers automatically and transparently redirect connection requests or transactions to an alternate database server if the primary server is unavailable due to a hardware failure or traffic overload.
DataDirect drivers dramatically outperform competitors in throughput capacity, CPU efficiency, and memory footprint as proven in performance benchmarks. This translates into faster response times, better scalability, and less hardware required to support applications.
Broad Support from One Vendor
DataDirect can serve all your data connectivity needs, for any API (JDBC, ODBC, ADO.NET, and OLE DB), for any major database—SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, Sybase, MySQL, Salesforce and more, while supporting all major platforms—Windows, Linux, and UNIX.
Speed up batch operations or load bulk data from a file the fastest way possible—without requiring code changes or costly database vendor tools.
Investing in DataDirect drivers reduces your total cost of ownership by:
- Reducing the system resources necessary to support data connectivity
- Reducing the time required to deploy and maintain applications
- Providing a cost effective solution for accessing proprietary or non-SQL data and making it available to widely used reporting and analysis tools
DataDirect drivers are rigorously tested under production conditions using a combination of widely available benchmarks and tools as well as the industry's most extensive proprietary test suites to test millions of scenarios, use cases, and bug fixes.
Industry-standard security features such as TLS / SSL data encryption and Kerberos authentication are incorporated into our drivers to reinforce your security strategy.
DataDirect drivers enable superior interoperability between databases by allowing you to write a SQL statement that can be executed across multiple databases, regardless of each database’s SQL implementation.
Platinum ODBC drivers add tremendous value when used as the database connectivity solution for high volume critical systems. These drivers have been meticulously developed and honed over time to be the best of the best. They are trusted to run the world’s largest and most highly available transactional systems, financial applications, banks, trading platforms, and government agencies.
Type 5 JDBC drivers offer the same client-side, single-tier, 100% Java architecture of Type 4 JDBC drivers, but address the limitations of many of the Type 4 JDBC drivers available today. Get Type 5 features and benefits, and read more about the limitations of Type 4.
