    Lightweight Data Gateway

    Access back-office data behind the firewall securely using our patented on-premises connector that can be optionally deployed in the DMZ or behind the corporate firewall. Get trusted hybrid data access without requiring major network/firewall configurations such as setting up a VPN or SSH tunneling.

    Horizontal Scaling

    Hybrid Data Pipeline can be deployed in cloud and enterprise environments across multiple nodes behind a load balancer. Incoming requests can be evenly distributed across cluster nodes.

    Universal Connectivity

    Secure

    All customer-sensitive data elements (including remote credential or database pairings stored) are protected by encryption, both at rest (AES-256) and in transit. Read our security paper.

    Throttling

    Limits API allows administrators to set limits on how many rows can be returned for ODBC, JDBC, and OData requests. An error is returned if an application fetches rows beyond the specified limit.

    Support for OData 4 and OData 2

    You can deploy OData 4 or OData 2 or both the endpoints over any data source. Progress DataDirect is a member of the OData Technical Committee and we stay on top of the OData specification updates.
