Informix Wire Protocol ODBC Driver

  1. The DataDirect Connect for ODBC Informix Wire Protocol driver connects to Informix servers without the need for any Informix networking software. The driver is optimized to communicate directly and efficiently with Informix servers using the Informix server wire protocol.
  2. The DataDirect Connect for ODBC Informix Wire Protocol driver supports a robust set of the ODBC 3.5 API features, including keyset scrollable cursors, bulk operations, and use of Informix types such as CLOB and BLOB as ODBC-based data types.
  3. The DataDirect Connect for ODBC Informix Wire Protocol driver optimizes forward-only cursors to pre-fetch multiple records in compact formats that are not available using Informix CLI. These optimizations reduce network traffic and improve performance when retrieving data from the database. Testing with industry benchmarks and customer benchmarks shows that the DataDirect driver is the fastest Informix driver in the marketplace when retrieving results from SELECT statements.
  4. The DataDirect Connect for ODBC Informix Wire Protocol driver is highly optimized for applications that use LOB data. How much time an ODBC driver spends sending and retrieving packets over the network determines how fast the driver can be. LOB data is inherently very taxing on the network in that large amounts of data must be transferred between the driver and the Informix server. The DataDirect Technologies driver uses special compression techniques unavailable to CLI applications when transferring LOB data to and from the Informix server.
