DataDirect's Type 5 JDBC Driver: The JDBC Driver for Big Data
Whether "big data" turns to big value for your enterprise or only big headaches will depend on your enterprise IT architecture. In organizations that rely heavily on Java-based services, your ability to effectively manage big data will rest in large part on the data connectivity middleware that binds your applications to your data stores. The Progress DataDirect Type 5 JDBC driver is engineered specifically to meet the steep demands of big data. No other JDBC driver can match the performance and reliability of the DataDirect JDBC driver.
The Best Performing JDBC Driver
The Progress DataDirect JDBC driver moves more data more quickly than any other JDBC driver on the market, while consuming fewer resources. As proven by SPECjAppServer/ECPerf testing and other benchmarking exercises, DataDirect's Java JDBC middleware delivers:
- Superior throughput. With its unique wire protocol design and tunable performance features, the DataDirect JDBC driver can process 20% to 500% more data in a given time period than competing JDBC drivers. For your Java-based services, superior JDBC connection performance translates to faster response times and the ability to support more concurrent users.
- More efficient resource usage. Benchmarking tests show that for a given amount of work, DataDirect drivers use fewer CPU cycles and less memory than competing drivers. That means lower system costs and better service scalability, particularly in virtualized environments.
DataDirect's high-performance JDBC driver suite features solutions for every major platform and database type, including an Oracle JDBC driver, a JDBC SQL Server driver, and JDBC drivers for Sybase, Informix, DB2, PostgreSQL, Salesforce, and more.
The Most Reliable and Secure JDBC Driver
With a 20 year history of focusing exclusively on data connectivity technology, DataDirect has mastered the design and engineering of ultra-reliable JDBC, ODBC, and ADO.NET drivers. Our testing suite has grown to be the most comprehensive and demanding in the industry, spanning millions of test cases and a wide range of application environments. No other JDBC driver on the market is tested as thoroughly as DataDirect's JDBC drivers.
To further ensure the reliable, safe movement of your enterprise data, DataDirect builds robust handling of database connect error scenarios and other error scenarios into our JDBC driver suite, as well as industry-best JDBC security features such as TLS/SSL data encryption and Kerberos-based authentication.
Delivering unmatched performance, scalability, and reliability, Progress DataDirect data connectivity products successfully manage "big data" in some of the world's largest enterprises including 96 of the Fortune 100 companies.
