Additional 64-bit ODBC drivers for your IBM InfoSphere DataStage upgrade

Additional 64-bit ODBC drivers for your IBM InfoSphere DataStage upgrade

March 13, 2012 0 Comments

It must be upgrade season based on number of IBM InfoSphere DataStage shops that I've worked with upgrading to the latest 64-bit version.  From reading about newer releases such as version 8.7, this is an exciting upgrade and we're here to ensure you have complete coverage for 64-bit ODBC data connectivity across Unix/Linux/Windows platforms that are otherwise unavailable.

Why do Infosphere shops choose DataDirect SequeLink 64-bit ODBC drivers for connectivity?

What common sources can be integrated within Infosphere using SequeLink?

So how does DataDirect SequeLink work?

SequeLink is highly scalable, server-based middleware that complements the Infosphere DataStage platform by including complete coverage for 64-bit ODBC data connectivity.  The SequeLink ODBC Socket communicates with any existing 32-bit or 64-bit ODBC 2.x, 3.x driver across Unix/Linux/Windows platforms.  This tier extends support to the 64-bit SequeLink Client for ODBC tier built on the storied DataDirect Connect for ODBC framework on platforms supported by DataStage.  SequeLink supports flexible deployment options allowing both tiers to be installed on the same system, or separately depending on the socket ODBC data source.  For complete details, see our white paper on DataDirect Sequelink.
