So what does that mean? Now, not only can developers use our best-in-class ADO.NET capabilities to quickly build high-performing desktop and Cloud applications, but business users can also rapidly develop business applications using Connect ADO.NET and Lightswitch!

As more .NET applications move to the Cloud, high data throughput and efficiency become even more important. Progress DataDirect Connect for ADO.NET 4.0.1 delivers the highest data throughputs with the lowest CPU and memory utilization in the market and this translates into fewer virtual servers and lower Cloud operating costs.
