We evaluated several offerings, but we chose Progress DataDirect OpenAccess because of DataDirect’s leadership and demonstrated success within the market. Progress is a developer-oriented products company. They have a long history of building software that developers use to build business applications. And part of that is DataDirect and the ability to connect data sources like VoltDB – a NewSQL database - to existing tooling. Leveraging Progress Software’s knowledge and experience has been very beneficial for VoltDB.

John Piekos VP of Engineering, VoltDB

The DataDirect support is great. We were able to port some old driver code to the new DataDirect version within a few days, working with DataDirect via e-mails sent from engineer to engineer for clarification. Response time was frequently a matter of minutes.

Development PM, NetSuite

One of the things we liked about Progress DataDirect - other than that they are the most widely recognized supplier of ODBC, JDBC, and .NET drivers—is that the technology is standards-based. We could assure our customers that the client and server part of our solution does not radically depart from what database vendors could offer.
